Giordano Bellincampi Conductor

Ligeti Atmospheres
Mozart Symphony No.40
Strauss Ein Heldenleben

Giordano Bellincampi begins his tenure with fresh and imaginative music – the otherworldly sounds of György Ligeti. Ligeti called it ‘an uninhabited, imaginary musical space’; despite his objections, it was used in 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Then, after Mozart’s tragic symphony, Richard Strauss’ bravura showpiece. The ‘Hero’ is ostensibly Strauss himself, but this piece is actually about any artist’s struggle against the world. It’s written for a virtuoso orchestra, and it’s the perfect piece for the APO and its Music Director to show what they can do together. Welcome, Maestro!
