Following a triumphant Paris debut in 1949 as the first German orchestra to perform post-war, the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra has remained in consistent demand all over the world. Tonight it is led by Chief Conductor Matthias Foremny and joined by Sony Award-winning artist Olga Scheps for a performance of Chopin’s deeply expressive Piano Concerto No. 1.
In January 2014, Olga Scheps released her second Chopin album with the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra; the first earned her a prestigious ECHO Klassik Award – Germany’s highest musical accolade.
The orchestra ends the night with Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for Strings, a charming and dream-like piece often used in ballets and films, recognized as one of the late Romantic era’s definitive compositions.
