OM’s artist-in-residence for the 23-24 season, Austrian virtuoso Andreas Ottensamer will conduct a spellbinding Romantic repertoire, accompanied by French clarinet poet Pierre Génisson.
Following Brahms’s melancholic Tragic Overture and lyrical Concerto No. 1, the stage is set for hope and sensuality. Augusta Holmès’s symphonic poem La Nuit et l’amour, recalling Wagner, was written in the Romantic style with an emphasis on melody. Finally, Schumann’s first symphony, also known as the Spring Symphony, evokes flowers and colours in bloom.
