“An orchestra of this caliber doesn’t come along every day.” – Washington Post

Lauded as the “Number One Orchestra in the World” by Gramophone, the acclaimed Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra returns to D.C. with a program evoking emperors and heroes. The “brilliant musician and an extraordinary visionary” (Wall Street Journal) Pierre-Laurent Aimard joins the orchestra for Beethoven’s show-stopping “Emperor” Concerto. Then the orchestra’s “rich sound, especially its mellow, full-bodied string section” (New York Times) will be on display in Strauss’s famed heroic tone poem Ein Heldenleben, which was originally dedicated to the RCO.

Leading the RCO for this performance is the acclaimed British conductor Daniel Harding. The current music director of the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Harding is also the principal guest conductor of the London Symphony Orchestra. He has made numerous guest appearances with many of the world’s other premier orchestras, including the Vienna, Berlin, New York, and Los Angeles Philharmonics, and appeared under Washington Performing Arts’ auspices in 2010 with Staatskapelle Dresden.

Program:
GUILLAUME CONNESSON — Eiréné: Poème Nocturne pour Orchestre (East Coast premiere)
BEETHOVEN — Piano Concert No. 5 in E-flat Major, Op. 73 «Emperor»
STRAUSS — Ein Heldenleben, Op. 40

This performance is made possible in part through the generous support of Dr. Gary Mather and Ms. Christina Co Mather; the Dallas Morse Coors Foundation for the Performing Arts; and Dr. Mark Cinnamon and Ms. Doreen Kelly. Washington Performing Arts orchestral performances in the 2018/19 season are made possible in part through the generous support of Betsy and Robert Feinberg.

This performance is part of Washington Performing Arts' global programming initiative, «The World in Our City,» which provides perspective on what it means to be a citizen of the world through a unique arts-based lens.

His Excellency Henne Schuwer, Ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, is the honorary patron of this engagement.
