London based Philharmonia Orchestra returns to the Odeon of Herodes Atticus to perform Beethoven’s Symphony no.3, along with excerpts from Wagner’s Götterdämmerung led by award winning Finnish conductor, Esa-Pekka Salonen and joined by American soprano Michelle DeYoung.
Founded in 1945, the London-based Philharmonia Orchestra is considered one of the world’s greatest orchestras, thanks to its pioneering approach in classical music, its use of digital technology and learning and participation programmes.
Since 2008, the award-winning Finnish conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen serves as principal conductor and artistic advisor of the orchestra. Salonen is one of the leading conductors of his generation, composer in residence at the New York Philharmonic and artistic director and founder of the Baltic Sea Festival. Following their hugely successful previous appearances at the Odeon in 2009, Philharmonia Orchestra and Esa-Pekka Salonen will return to the Athens and Epidaurus Festival in July.
