A passionate promoter of authentic interpretations, Ton Koopman has long been one of the world’s leading authorities on the works of J. S. Bach. In his return to Gulbenkian Music for two concerts conducting the Gulbenkian Orchestra, he makes a rare foray beyond an imaginary line of interest he drew on the date of Mozart’s death, with Beethoven’s Symphony No. 2. He also welcomes the interpretive brilliance of Alexei Volodin, a pianist whose very clever technique coexists alongside an expression capable of impetuous flashes and the highest lyricism.
