Alexander Shelley returns to Tivoli with the Copenhagen Philharmonic Orchestra

July 1, 2018

Next week Alexander Shelley returns to Copenhagen, where he has previously performed runs of Gounod’s Romeo & Juliet, Lehar’s Merry Widow, and numerous concert programmes.

On Sunday 1st July at 3pm, Shelley leads the Copenhagen Philharmonic Orchestra at the Tivoli Concert Hall – located in the renowned Tivoli Gardens. The park opened in 1843 and is the second oldest operating amusement park in the world. Tivoli celebrates 175 years in 2018 – and for classical music, this means one long and unbroken run of 175 music seasons.

Concert programme:

TELEMANN Suite in A Major

MOZART Symphony No.35 K.385, Haffner

SIERRA Prelude, Habanera & Perpetual Motion

BIZET Selection from Carmen Suites

Danish recorder player Michala Petri will perform in both the Telemann and the Sierra. Petri, who began playing the recorder at the age of three, is noted for her virtuosity and versatility across a wide range of styles, from the baroque repertoire at the height of the instrument’s popularity, to contemporary works written specifically for her.
