On Tour

The DSO and Robin Ticciati in Cologne and Amsterdam

Music director Robin Ticciati and the DSO are on tour playing concerts at the Cologne Philharmonie and the Concertgebouw Amsterdam on February 12 and 13.

With the composer's two piano concertos the then 15 year old Canadian of Polish descent rose to fame in 2010. Five years later he gave his celebrated DSO debut with Chopin's first concerto.

Also on the programme: Strawinsky's colourful ballet ›Firebird‹ (in Cologne) and Antonín Dvořák's ninth symphony (in Amsterdam) as well as Rachmaninov's elegiac tone poem ›Isle of the Dead‹.
