Valery Gergiev - conductor
Valery Gergiev is one of the greatest conductors alive today. Acclaimed by The Guardian for his ‘truly inspirational music making’, the legendary maestro has conducted all of the world’s major orchestras. This evening he will focus his exceptional creative force on the Philomusica, directing them in Strauss’ tragic Metamorphosen – a poignant lament borne from the composer’s despair at the destruction of German music – and Mendelssohn’s evocative impression of Scotland.
