Touring Europe with two of Norway's greatest soloists

In the 24/25 Season, you can hear the Oslo Philharmonic with Klaus Mäkelä in eight concerts in some of Europe's biggest music cities.

The tour season starts at the Salzburg Festival in Austria on 21 August. Klaus stands on the podium with Lisa Batiashvili, the soloist in Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto. In addition, you will hear Shostakovich's Symphony No. 5, which is included on the album that Klaus and the orchestra releases earlier that month. The festival season ends on 1 September during the Berlin Musikfest in Germany.

In October, the orchestra accompanies Klaus Mäkelä and the world-renowned Norwegian soloists Vilde Frang and Leif Ove Andsnes when they embark on a European tour. The first stop is Brussels in Belgium with Vilde Frang as soloist in Stravinsky's Violin Concerto. The orchestra stops in Stuttgart, Germany, before the tour continues to the Musikverein in Vienna, Austria, with Leif Ove Andsnes as soloist in Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 5. The tour concludes in Germany, first with two concerts at the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg, with Frang and Andsnes as soloist in each concert, and finally with one concert in Dortmund.

In addition to foreign tours and concerts, you can hear the Oslo Philharmonic at Slottsplassen, in Lillehammer, and in Larvik this season.
