Since he took over the artistic leadership of the Gulbenkian Orchestra, Lorenzo Viotti has left several personal touches on each musical season’s programming, innovating and surprising at every step. In these last concerts as Principal Conductor of the Gulbenkian Orchestra he partially resumes the programme of his first performance, in January 2017. In addition to the supreme excitement and the tragedy of Tristan and Isolde, he adds the ethereal beauty of the Poème de Chausson, in the voice of the tenor Benjamin Bernheim, ending with R. Strauss’ musical impressions of Italy, reflected in the symphonic poem Aus Italien.
