A Class Act by Quintessential German Ensemble and Star Soloists

Founded by the legendary Karl Müchinger in 1945, the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra (SKO) has maintained its prominent position for over seven decades. A recipient of the 2008 European Chamber Music Prize, the SKO has been a pioneering cultural ambassador, including being the first German orchestra to perform in post-war Paris and in China in the late 1970s. The SKO also boasts a glorious history as one of the most recorded chamber orchestras. Under the leadership of Dennis Russell Davies, the SKO has released the critically-acclaimed live recordings of all 107 symphonies by Haydn.

In this concert, the SKO will be pitting the poise of Haydn’s Symphony No. 83 against the abandon of Liszt’s ever-popular Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2. The ensemble will be joined by ECHO KLASSIK Award winner Dejan Lazić, as well as Artistic Director and world-renowned cellist Trey Lee. Described as “a concerto of a peculiar kind”, Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 14 was a milestone in the guise of an understated gem. Written some eighty years apart, Tchaikovsky’s Variations on a Rococo Theme clearly resonates the graceful yet occasionally dramatic style epitomized by Mozart, which ties into the classy, old-world charm of the rest of the program.
