The GKO Opens Its 2016 Season in Ingolstadt
- Two weeks after the official launch of the 2016 season at the enthusiastically received New Year’s Day concert, the new subscription series has begun as well—with a soirée completely under the auspices of Mendelssohn: besides the Hebrides overture, the Violin Concerto in E minor (soloist: Alexandra Soumm) and the Third Symphony (“Scottish”) were performed.
- After Julian Rachlin had figured as artist-in-residence in 2015, Sharon Kam could be won over for the present season. The new season of the Georgisches Kammerorchester (Georgian Chamber Orchestra; GKO) holds in store many more musical highlights with a wide repertory and great soloists. Likewise, the GKO’s busy recording schedule, begun last year, will continue under the direction of Ruben Gazarian; new CD productions are forthcoming.
