Brazilian conductor Eduardo Strausser has gained a reputation for his intelligent programming and powerful style on the podium. Daily Revolution described him as “a real force of nature. His conducting is imbued with charisma, stage presence, and good chemistry with the orchestra.” He conducts with “smooth sovereignty…with brilliant accuracy” (Neue Musikzeitung), which will illuminate the brilliant Romantic concerto of Beethoven performed by Li.

With Image Magnification (IMAG) on the big screen for a closer look at the guest artist, conductor and orchestra musicians!
