After successful tenures with the Prague Radio Symphony Orchestra and the Norwegian National Radio Orchestra, conductor Petr Popelka becomes the new chief conductor of one of the world's finest orchestras, the Vienna Symphony, starting from 2024-2025—a truly noteworthy appointment. In this concert, he collaborates with the acclaimed pianist Alexandre Kantorow, dubbed the reincarnation of Franz Liszt by the American Fanfare Magazine. Kantorow's stellar career took off with a Grand Prix at the Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow, followed by performances worldwide in prestigious venues like the Berlin Philharmonie, Verbier Festival, and the Cité de la Musique in Paris. These intergenerational talents now grace the stage at the Queen Elisabeth Hall, presenting a quintessentially German romantic program that transports audiences through the breathtaking universe of Schumann, Liszt, and Wagner.
