Welcome Andrés Orozco-Estrada!
The Vienna Symphony Orchestra praises his energy, elegance and esprit: Andrés Orozco-Estrada is their new chief conductor. The Colombian-born composer sets strong thematic accents by placing tone poems by Richard Strauss at the center of his first season. Strauss' tone poem "Ein Heldenleben" will be heard at his inaugural concert. In addition to compositions by Korngold, which the orchestra premiered at the beginning of the 20th century, the "Fanfare" by the young Dutch composer Carlijn Metselaar, commissioned especially for this festive occasion, will also be premiered.
