Following concerts in the Karmeliterkirche in Weissenburg and the Meistersingerhalle in Nuremberg at the weekend, Alexander Shelley and the Nuremberg Symphony are looking forward to the orchestra’s first ever guest engagement in the Goldener Saal of the Musikverein in Vienna. The concert, which has now been sold out for several weeks and in which the orchestra will present a programme of German and Bohemian composers, including Smetana’s Overture to “The Bartered Bride” and Dvorak’s rarely heard 4th Symphony, is the culmination of a brief tour of Austria which will begin in Klagenfurt. They will be joined by soloist Anton Sorokow—leader of the Vienna Symphony Orchestra—in Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto and also by Sanghee Cheong for a performance of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Double Violin Concerto.
