The Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra 

April 30 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm EDT

$35 – $110

“Here is an orchestra that is not only very brilliant – it doesn’t have any weaknesses at all. They are enormously spontaneous and emotional performers, playing every concert like it could be their last. They give everything, more than a hundred percent.” – Gramophone 

Sir Simon Rattle makes his first visit to Washington, D.C., in more than 20 years as chief conductor of Germany’s acclaimed Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra (BRSO). Known throughout the world for his deep musical insight, and charismatic presence as an educator and communicator, Rattle leads the Grammy-winning BRSO in a performance of orchestral showpieces. Experience Richard Wagner’s Prelude und Liebestod from the heart-wrenching opera Tristan und Isolde; Beethoven’s nature-inspired “Pastoral” Symphony; and Alexander von Zemlinsky’s Symphony Gesänge, performed with charismatic baritone Lester Lynch, a vocalist “with nuance and satisfying dramatic variety” (Bachtrack), who is well-known to D.C.-area audiences. Do not miss the opportunity to experience this one of only four U.S. performances by the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra in 2024.
