LEONARDO COLAFELICE on piano, ERSO, conductor GIORDANO BELLINCAMPI
Conductor Giordano Bellincampi will be returning to Estonia in January. The music director of the Auckland Philharmonic Orchestra will perform with ERSO for the fourth time This time, the programme features works by German composers. The concert will begin with the overture from Carl Maria von Weber’s opera Euryanthe, which, despite the failure of the opera itself, has remained a popular work in the concert repertoire. The second half will feature a performance of Richard Strauss’s musical autobiography Ein Heldenleben (A Hero’s Life).
Last time, in 2022, the young Italian pianist Leonardo Colafelice was set to perform with ERSO together with Bellincampi, but circumstances forced him to find a new soloist. This season, we look forward to the return of the talented artist and the programme includes a performance of Ludwig van Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 3.
