Berlin – Oxford – Naantali – Prades – Jerusalem – Seoul
After a diversified year of conducting in the Hamburg Musikhalle, Vienna Konzerthaus, the Klaipeda Festival and Sao Paolo (among others), new collaborations with the Lithuanian Chamber Orchestra and Seoul Virtuosi are currently being planned. In London, Hartmut Rohde will premiere the viola concerto written by Philip Sawyers with the English Symphony Orchestra during their 20/21 season. Performances at the Intonation Festival Berlin, Jerusalem Festival, as well as the Casals Festival in Prades allow him to make music with dear friends such as Arto Noras, Ralph and Mark Gothoni, Elena Bashkirova, and Michael Barenboim.
In addition to concerts in Germany, notable events for the Mozart Piano Quartet include appearances in Oxford, at the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, and at the Seoul Arts Center. Two exciting CD releases are expected for the spring of 2020: Hans Gál, concerto for piano and string orchestra and his impromptu for viola and piano (Gottlieb Wallisch, piano – Franz Liszt Chamber Orchestra Budapest, Hartmut Rohde, conductor) as well as Gabriel Fauré’s two piano quintets with the Mozart Piano Quartet and Régis Pasquier (Quintet op. 89) and Sashiko Segawa (Quintet op. 115).
