Brahms / Haydn / Strauss / Strauss II

“A magician with Viennese charm”: this is how the Austrian press described Emmanuel Tjeknavorian, a prodigious young violinist and a highly promising conductor. Here, the young Austrian of Armenian origin will lead one of the world’s most celebrated orchestras. His considerable talent is reflected in his programme: a fiery Brahms, a seductive and mischievous take on the Strauss brothers, and an elegant and classical Haydn that brings together four soloists in a single concerto.
