Images of the European North–German Romantics I

With the kind support of the German Embassy in Athens

A number of this season’s concerts are dedicated to works by German Romantics and post-Romantics. The first concert in the cycle is presided over by Robert Schumann's larger-than-life Third Symphony and emotionally-laden Cello Concerto, which is performed by the up-and-coming soloist, Gabriel Schwabe. Alongside these masterpieces, under the baton of Stefanos Tsialis, the Athens State Orchestra sheds light on the fascinating work of a composer little-known in Greece: Hans Pfitzner.
