The Great Symphonists: Wagner, Elgar, Beethoven

LUDWIG VAN BEETHOVEN – Symphony No. 1 in C major, Op. 21

Lithuanian audience has known French conductor Olivier Grangean for more than 15 years. The maestro came to Vilnius for the first time on the initiative of the French Institute in Paris. According to Grangean, already during the first meeting with the Lithuanian National Symphony Orchestra he was pleasantly surprised by the receptivity of our musicians. Excellent professional and personal bonds immediately developed with the orchestra. Tonight, the maestro will lead the LNSO in two picturesque 19th century symphonic scores: Beethoven’s First Symphony and an overture to Wagner’s opera Der fliegende Holländer (The Flying Dutchman). In addition, the musicians will perform an incredibly beautiful, but at the same time extremely complex Concerto for cello and orchestra by the English romanticist Elgar. French and Belgian cellist Camille Thomas will appear as a soloist. In 2017, she became the first female cellist to sign an exclusive international contract with the prestigious record label Deutsche Grammophon. Supported by the Nippon Music Foundation, she has been performing on Antonio Stradivari’s “De Munck-Feuermann” (1730) since 2019.
