One of the oldest and most acclaimed orchestras in the world kicks off this year’s orchestras programme at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus. Founded in 1548, Staatskapelle Dresden has been linked with music legends such as Richard Strauss who premiered nine of his operas with this orchestra. In 2007, it became the first orchestra in the world to receive the European Prize for the Preservation of the World’s Musical Heritage.

The orchestra will perform at the Odeon under the baton of the major, particularly beloved in Europe, South Korean conductor Myung-Whun Chung, formerly music director of the Paris National Opera (1989-1994) and the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France (2000-2015) and conductor of Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia in Rome (1997-2005).

Award-winning American pianist Emanuel Ax, whose numerous accolades include seven Grammy Awards, will be featured as soloist in Beethoven’s hugely popular Piano Concerto No. 5, Op. 73, also known as Emperor Concerto, on the occasion of the celebration of Beethoven’s 250th birthday. In the second part of the performance, the historic orchestra will present one of the most celebrated orchestral works of the world repertoire: Brahms’ Symphony No. 4, Op. 98.
