Francesco makes his debut with the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig in two concerts conducted by Sir Roger Norrington on 5 and 6 November 2015. Together they perform Dvorák’s Piano Concerto in G minor, Op.33, which Francesco recorded for Naïve in 2013:
“Listening to Piemontesi…makes you wonder if it isn’t time the Dvorak gained a place in the regular concerto repertoire.”
Francesco and Norrington have worked together many times before, including with the Zurich Chamber Orchestra in January 2015, NHK Symphony Orchestra Tokyo in October 2014, and the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin in December 2013.
The programme in Leipzig is completed with Elgar’s Elegy and Symphony No.1.
