Sir William Walton and his wife Susana

Music for/from Britain

Our every collaboration with the experienced German conductor Christoph Poppen turns out to be an unforgettable experience for the musicians and the audience alike! In this, his latest appearance with the ASO, he will be conducting Mendelssohn's melancholy "Scottish" Symphony along with the première of a new symphonic work by Dimitris Papadimitriou. The internationally acclaimed violaist Tatiana Mazurenco will play Walton's demanding Viola Concerto, which was prevented from being performed last year by force of circumstance.
