Debut with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe

Feb 15, 2022

On February 17, Rafael Payare makes his first appearance with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe, launching a Scandinavian tour highlighted by the ensemble’s Norwegian debut. At concerts in Bergen, Norway (Feb 17), Oslo (Feb 19) and Aalborg, Denmark (Feb 20), he conducts the overture to Mozart’s Don Giovanni followed by Schumann’s Violin Concerto, with Gramophone and BBC Music Award-winning Norwegian violinist Vilde Frang as soloist. The concert program closes with Beethoven’s mighty “Eroica” Symphony.

Payare shares, “Beethoven’s ‘Eroica’ is, of course, phenomenal, and represents such an important point in music history. It will be a great joy to make music with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe.”
