The OSM and Altinoglu Open the Season

Amphithéâtre Fernand-Lindsay

Friday July 5 / 8 p.m

The most famous orchestras and the most renowned concert halls of Europe are after him: French conductor Alain Altinoglu, whose OSM debut last fall was a major event. He returns to the OSM, along with pianist Francesco Piemontesi, for the grand opening concert of the 2019 Festival, a concert of magical Mendelssohn (music from A Midsummer Night’s Dream), pianistic pyrotechnics (Mendelssohn’s Piano Concerto No. 1), the passion of Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde and the shenanigans of Strauss’s Till Eulenspiegel.
