Marking their first U.S. performances together, this spring Grammy and ECHO Klassik Award-winning conductor Fabio Luisi tours five California cities with the Danish National Symphony Orchestra (DNSO), where he launched his tenure as Principal Conductor this season. At concerts in Santa Barbara (March 28), Palm Desert (March 29), San Diego (March 30), Costa Mesa (March 31), and San Francisco (April 2 & 3), he and the orchestra will perform Wagner's Wesendonck Lieder with star soprano Deborah Voigt, whom Luisi conducted as Brünnhilde in Robert LePage's 2011 “Ring” cycle at New York's Metropolitan Opera. The music of Danish composer Carl Nielsen, long a DNSO staple, will also be featured: the Helios Overture, and, exclusively in San Francisco, the Symphony No. 6. At the first four concerts, the program will be completed by the spring-infused First Symphony by Mahler, whose Ninth Symphony Luisi conducted at the DNSO's season-opening concerts last fall; in San Francisco, he will instead lead music by Beethoven – the “Eroica” Symphony and Violin Concerto, with Arabella Steinbacher as soloist – and Richard Strauss. Shortly after the tour, Luisi returns to California to conduct the San Francisco Symphony (April 27–29) before bringing his U.S. spring season to a close on the East Coast, where he looks forward to leading The Orchestra Now (T?N) at Bard College (May 28).
