Founded in 1912, the Helsingborg Symphony Orchestra is one of the key international leaders sought after for both concert tours and recording projects. In addition to regular appearances on major Scandinavian stages, the HSO has had many successes at prominent European venues recently appearing in Munich and Nuremberg. The orchestra has been praised with “…playing with an intensity untempered by discretion. Must be heard.”
For this engagement, they will perform Jean Sibelius’ Valse Triste, Op. 44, No. 1; Sir Edward Elgar’s Violin Concerto in B minor, Op. 61 with Violin Soloist Catherine Manoukian, and Johannes Brahms’ Symphony No. 2 in D major.
The performance is sponsored, in part, by Sam and Nancy Craig.
