Nürnberger Symphoniker conducted by Kahchun Wong - Meistersingerhalle

Program Info:
Nürnberger Symphoniker
Kahchun Wong, conductor
Ilia Staple, soprano
Maximilian Mayer, tenor
Sabine Sauer, moderation

Actually, this concert should have taken place on New Year 2021 - as a festive entrance to the 75th anniversary of the Nuremberg Symphony Orchestra. But then came the new Lockdown. You already know. In the New Year's Concert 2022, we are now celebrating 76 years of the Nuremberg Symphony Orchestra. Moderated by audience favourite Sabine Sauer, it presents a panorama of orchestral music from the year the Symphony was founded in 1946 until today. Sometimes virtuoso, sometimes romantic, sometimes bizarre, but always thrilling: masterpieces of music for the concert hall or music theatre, but also bestsellers of film music such as the soundtrack to Ben Hur , which the Symphoniker recorded for Hollywood when they were still called the Franconian State Orchestra, or the main title for Beauty and the Beast, the recording of which earned the orchestra a spectacular Grammy Award. Leonard Bernstein's hit of the century West Side Story and a Happy Birthday to ourselves should not be missing from this selection !

On the repertoire:
Aram Khatschaturjan - Spartacus, from it: Adagio
Leonard Bernstein - West Side Story, Concert Suite No. 1
Miklós Rózsa - Ben-Hur
Dmitri Shostakovich - Symphony No. 15 in A major, from it: Allegretto
Lee Holdridge Beauty and the Beast
and many more
