Rossen Milanov’s February continues with the Orquesta Sinfónica del Principado de Asturias, where he serves as Chief Conductor. This week, he leads concerts in Gijon (February 19) and Oviedo (February 20) that highlight Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2, performed by Gabriela Montero. The work is heard alongside Jesús Rueda’s Elephant Skin and Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 15.
The following week, once again dividing time between Gijon and Oviedo, respectively, the Bulgarian conductor leads Thomas Adès’s Three Studies from Couperin, Lalo’s Symphonie Espagnole with violinist Leticia Moreno, and two works by Debussy: Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune and La Mer. Performances take place February 26 and 27. Finally, in March, Rossen reunites with OSPA in Gijon and Oviedo on the 26th and 27th for Brahms’s Ein Deutsches Requiem, which features the vocal talents of the Coro de la Fundación Príncipe de Asturias.
