Every performance of Ninth is a major occasion. As will be the case on September when Christian Vásquez opens his sixth season as music director of the Stavanger Symphony Orchestra with two performances of Beethoven’s monumental Ninth.
The Stavanger Symphony Orchestra 2018-19 season begins with two performances of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony conducted by Maestro Christian Vásquez with vocal soloists soprano Gal James, mezzo-soprano Kristina Hammarstrøm, tenor Marcel Beekman and baritone Konstantin Wolff. The concerts will take place on Thursday, September 06 at 7:30 p.m., and Friday, September 07 at 7:30 p.m., at the Stavanger Concert Hall.
In addition to performing Beethoven’s Ninth, they will play «An die Freude! – Ode to Joy! From Cradle to Beethoven’s 9th Symphony», musical prologue by Jon-Roar Bjørkvold.
This will be a magnificent season opening.
