Info
Writing for Die Presse in 2016, Walter Weidringer saw “a promise for the future” in a concert by Leonidas Kavakos with the Wiener Symphoniker. The auspicious verdict referred principally to Kavakos’s achievement in the then unfamiliar – for him – role of conductor, a role he will once more take up in these concerts in addition to that of soloist. World famous as a violin virtuoso, Kavakos has also hit the musical headlines as a conductor, working with orchestras to which he is linked by long and intensive collaboration. There can be no doubt that the Wiener Symphoniker have belonged to this exclusive circle since his debut with them in 2003. Since then he has performed with them on 36 occasions: since 2011-12, practically every season has seen a concert block with the pairing.
