This Friday, Domingo Hindoyan makes his Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra debut with a programme of Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 1 (with Jeremy Denk, piano), followed by Elgar’s Symphony No. 1 which Hans Richter (who conducted the premiere of the work in 1908 and to whom the composer dedicated the symphony) concluded to be “the greatest symphony of modern times”.
This performance follows Domingo’s “impressive” and “vibrantly paced” (Chicago Sun Times) debut earlier this month with Lyric Opera of Chicago conducting Puccini’s La bohème, where he will return to lead further performances of the same work in the New Year. The star-studded cast showcases Maria Agresta (Mimì), Michael Fabiano (Rodolfo) and Danielle de Niese (Musetta).
Further significant debuts this season alone feature the prestigious Wiener Staatsoper (Turandot), Liceu Barcelona (Luisa Miller), Royal Swedish Opera (Aida), Orchestre de Chambre de Paris, and Würth Philharmoniker to name a few. Domingo will also return again as a regularly sought-after guest of Deutsche Staatsoper Berlin (Tosca). Looking ahead to future seasons, Domingo looks forward to returning to the Metropolitan Opera and Wiener Staatsoper, and makes his Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, and Opéra de Paris debuts.
