The Best Young Artist of the Year
By Dan Lowell
La Filarmonica is once again presenting an outstanding program of Mozart, Haydn and Beethoven by the world-renowned Vienna Symphony Orchestra with Adam Fisher conducting and the young cellist Spanish Pablo Fernandez.
A NIGHT IN VIENNA
The Vienna Symphony Orchestra, a celebrated Viennese institution with over 100 years of history, emblem of the symphonic traditional and cultural life of the city, returns to La Filarmonica Concert Society after its debut in the second season.
Conductor Adam Fisher, renowned universally as a great specialist in the Viennese repertoire, will conduct the legendary group in its second visit of the season. The orchestra and conductor are ideal ambassadors to offer a program dedicated to these three pillars of classicism.
The great attraction of the concert will be the presentation by La Filarmonica of Pablo Fernandez in his debut tour with the Vienna Symphony. This young Madrid cellist caused a great impact on becoming the prizewinner at the XV International Tchaikovsky Competition in the Tchaikovsky contest. Moreover, he has just been named “Best Young Artist of the Year” in the International Classical Music Awards 2016.
The Mozart-Haydn-Beethoven concert is part of Spanish tour which the orchestra will make this month with performances in Madrid, Alicante, Gerona, Zaragoza and Barcelona. The same program will be performed by the orchestra at the Grosses Festspielhaus of Salzburg, with the cellist Nicolas Altstaedt in that event.
