Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra season opens September 8 with Mahler's Seventh
This September Dudamel returns to Sweden to begin his fifth season as Music Director of the Gothenburg Symphony. He and the orchestra open the 2011-12 season with performances of Mahler's Seventh Symphony on September 8, 9 and 10 at Gothenburg's Great Hall.
Following the opening week, Dudamel leads the orchestra in the world premiere of Karin Rehnqvist's Tiger Touch. The program for these concerts also includes Mozart's Clarinet Concerto with Martin Fröst as soloist and Tchaikovsky's Sixth Symphony. Tiger Touch is being commissioned by the GSO in honor of its Maestro's 30th birthday, which he celebrated earlier this year.
