Lionel Bringuier embarks on simultaneous tours this spring across the European continent, with the Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich and a roster of some of today’s most acclaimed soloists.
Pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet joins Lionel and the Tonhalle Orchestra for a series of performances, beginning in Zurich on April 6, 7 & 8. These concerts feature Mr. Thibaudet on Grieg’s Piano Concerto in A minor, in addition to Brahms’ Piano Quartet No. 1 in G minor (Arr. by Schoenberg). There will also be a lunch time concert on April 7, which highlights a brief programme showcasing the Brahms Piano Quartet.
Mr. Bringuier and Mr. Thibaudet reunite for several additional performances throughout the month; April 12 in Rosenheim, which includes the Grieg Concerto, Brahms Quartet, and Beethoven’s Egmont Overture; April 14 at the Kölner Philharmonie featuring Widmann’s Con Brio, the Grieg Concerto, and Dvořák’s Symphony No. 8; and April 15 at the Philharmonie de Paris, highlighting the Grieg and Dvořák works mentioned above. Please note ticket availability is especially limited at the Philharmonie de Paris, with very few seats remaining for the performance.
Concurrently, Lionel Bringuier and the Tonhalle Orchestra present several tour dates with violinist Lisa Batiashvili and cellist Gautier Capuçon. They perform at the Wiener Konzerthaus on April 11, with a programme featuring Widmann’s Con Brio, the Brahms Double Concerto featuring Ms. Batiashvili and Mr. Capuçon, and Dvořák’s Symphony No. 8. On April 16 they perform at the Kongresshaus Stadthalle as part of the Heidelberger Frühling, highlighting Beethoven’s Egmont Overture, and Brahms’ Piano Quartet No. 1 in G minor (Arr.
