Next week Alexander returns to the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig for the third time in 12 months, presenting and conducting their annual summer open air concert in Rosental Park. This is the third time that Alexander has been charged with leading festivities since his debut in 2014. He and the orchestra will be joined by baritones Thomas Hampson and Luca Pisaroni for two up-beat programmes of operatic classics and orchestral favourites. Over 25,000 people are expected at each of the free concerts, sponsored by Gewandhaus main partner Porsche.
