Ravel, Mahler, Strauss and Schubert in China

After two highly series at the National Center for the Performing Arts in Beijing Thomas returns to China for a exciting symphonic program with the very young Suzhou Symphony Orchestra.

Together with the highly acclaimed Chinese mezzo soprano they will perform Mahler’s cycle „Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen“. The program starts with Schubert’s „Unfinished“ symphony before turning to colorful early 20th century masterpieces like Richard Strauss „Rosenkavalier Suite“ and Ravel’s „La valse“- both integrating Viennese waltzes in a very personal and dramatic way.
