GUEST CONDUCTOR FABIO LUISI LEADS THE DANISH NATIONAL SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA IN TWO PROGRAMS THIS APRIL AT DAVIES SYMPHONY HALL
Soprano Deborah Voigt featured in Wagner’s Wesendonck Lieder April 2; Violinist Arabella Steinbacher returns to perform Beethoven’s Violin Concerto in D Major, Opus 61 April 3
SAN FRANCISCO, MARCH 13 — Grammy award-winning conductor Fabio Luisi leads the Danish National Symphony Orchestra in two concerts next month, featuring American soprano Deborah Voigt performing Wagner’s Wesendonck Lieder on April 2 and German violinist Arabella Steinbacher performing Beethoven’s virtuosic Violin Concerto in D Major on April 3. Voigt is internationally revered for her performances of Wagner’s works— including Tristan and Isolde, which was written simultaneously with Wesendonck Lieder. Luisi, the Danish National Symphony Orchestra’s newly appointed principal conductor, returns to conduct the San Francisco Symphony April 27–29.
The April 2 concert program also includes Beethoven’s Symphony No. 3, Eroica, and Danish composer Carl Nielsen’s Helios Overture—an orchestral work inspired by his visit to Athens and the rising and setting of the sun over the Aegean Sea. The concert on April 3 includes R. Strauss’ virtuosic showpiece Don Juan and Nielsen’s Symphony No. 6, FS 116, Sinfonia semplice, his final symphonic composition and the most rarely performed of his six symphonies.
