Spanish conductor Antonio Méndez has conducted such world renowned orchestras as the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Wiener Symphoniker, Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra, Danish National Symphony Orchestra, Residentie Orchestra The Hague and Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra. Méndez won the Second Prize at the International Nikolai Malko Conductors Competition in 2012 and a year later he was among the finalists at the Nestlé and Salzburg Festival Young Conductors Award.
The concert is named after one of the most renowned works of music history, Symphony No. 5 (aka Fate Symphony) by Ludwig van Beethoven, who himself described the famous theme of the first movement as “fate knocking at the door”. Excerpts from “Tristan and Isolde” and “Parsifal” by the greatest opera reformist, Richard Wagner, will be performed in the first half of the concert.
