John Axelrod

After Yannick Nézet-Séguin cancelled two concerts with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra due to illness the orchestra asked American conductor John Axelrod to step in at short notice. For Axelrod it is his debut with the Bavarians.

The concerts on 28 and 29 June will start with Barber’s Adagio for Strings, then feature Igor Stravinsky’s Chant funèbre. The main work is Shostakovich’s seldom performed Symphony No. 13, Babi Yar, involving also Russian bass Mikhail Petrenko and the Bavarian Radio Men’s Choir.
