First concert of the visiting orchestras series at the Barbican this season. And what an orchestra: Gewandhausorchester Leipzig, the oldest in active civil orchestra. Also was of the oldest conductors: Herbert Blomstedt. One more perk: the not so frequently programmed Beethoven triple concerto with three front line soloists: Leonidas Kavakos, Gautier Capuçon and Kirill Gerstein (that’s why is not so frequent, paying three soloists is much more expensive). And the final one was having Bruckner 7th symphony, which was premiered by this very same orchestra.
