Vasily Petrenko and the Oslo Philharmonic return to the International Festival with a vibrant programme of Richard Strauss and Prokofiev.

Oslo Philharmonic

Vasily Petrenko | Conductor
Lise Davidsen | Soprano

Richard Strauss | Don Juan
Richard Strauss | Songs
Prokofiev | Symphony No 6

Sung in German with English supertitles...

Deeply moving and profoundly cathartic: the Oslo Philharmonic and charismatic Chief Conductor Vasily Petrenko perform Prokofiev’s masterful meditation on the tragedy of war, in the centenary year of the 1918 Armistice. His darkly lyrical Sixth Symphony is a poignant elegy to the Soviet victims of the Second World War.

Petrenko and his Oslo players made a huge impact at their two International Festival concerts in 2015, acclaimed for their sonic beauty and powerful musical visions.

Richard Strauss’s exuberant Don Juan is a vivid musical portrait of the inveterate womaniser that ends with a duel to the death.

Captivating young Norwegian soprano Lise Davidsen – winner of Placido Domingo’s celebrated Operalia contest in 2015 – sings exquisite orchestral songs by Strauss including Cäcilie and Wiegenlied.
