I'm thrilled to be returning to Bonn, Germany and to be making my debut at the filarmonica in Brasov, Romania. In Germany I will will be conducting a number of performances of Beethoven's Choral Fantasy with Philharmonie Horst and the gifted young pianist Maria Eydman as part of the festival taking place across the city celebrating 250 years since the composers birth. In Brasov I shall be collaborating with the fabulous Alexandru Tomescu (violin) on performance that will include Capoianu's modernist Violin Concerto and Rachmaninov's Symphony No. 2, the latter of which is a work that is close to my heart.
