Chamber Orchestra Vienna – Berlin performs in Eldborg tomorrow, May 19th at 7:30 pm.
In the eyes of the audience and the international music critics likewise, there are only two orchestras competing for the leading position: Vienna- and Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. In such a situation, the differences between the two ensembles tend to be emphasized: the smooth elegance and nobleness of the Viennese, captivating and passionate Berliners, velvety string sound being the virtue of the one, brilliant wind soloists the virtue of the other orchestra. Under such conditions, it doesn’t seem inappropriate to celebrate the creation of the Chamber Orchestra Vienna – Berlin as a sensation.
The French cellist Gautier Capuçon performs Cellokonzert in C- Dur by Joseph Haydn with the orchestra. He is recognised the world over as one of the most charismatic, enchanting and exuberant musicians performing today and consistently receives high critical praise for his performances. The winner of various first prizes in many leading international competitions, including the International André Navarra Prize, Capuçon was named ‘New Talent of the Year’ by Victoires de la Musique in 2001. He has performed with the Berlin Philharmonic, Concertgebouw Orchestra, London Symphony Orchestra, Leipzig Gewandhaus, Los Angeles
