Lorenzo Viotti’s first performance as Principal Guest Conductor of the Gulbenkian Orchestra, after three memorable years as Principal Conductor. After conducting Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 9 last season, Viotti now returns to the Russian composer to conduct the Violion Concerto No. 1, which will be performed by Lisa Batiashvili. The programme also features Metamorphosen, by Richard Strauss, an intense composition coinciding with the end of the Second World War.
