Andris Nelsons conducts Flothuis, Strauss, and Shostakovich — With Alexei Ogrintchouk
Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra
Thank you for your understanding.
Under Andris Nelsons, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra presents works by Marius Flothuis, Richard Strauss, and Shostakovich. With his Cantus Amoris, the ensemble marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of Flothuis, who was their artistic director for twenty years until the mid-1970s. Next up is the Oboe Concerto by Richard Strauss, one of the last works by the great German composer, overcome by nostalgia for an irretrievably lost world in the wake of the Second World War.
