In his first concert as Music Director of the Gulbenkian Orchestra, Hannu Lintu conducts Ligeti’s Atmosphères and Mahler’s 2nd Symphony. Certain of his future as a conductor since he watched Leif Segerstam conduct Verdi at the Savonlinna Opera Festival at the age of ten, Lintu’s main references are Bernstein for his courage, Abbado for his ability to keep the music moving and Solti for having awakened him to Wagner’s operas and Mahler’s symphonies through remarkable recordings. It is the long-awaited official appearance of one of the most relevant conductors of our days.
