Following a successful collaboration as Artist in Residence with the Bamberger Symphoniker earlier this season, Martin Fröst travels to Frankfurt this month to start his tenure as Principal Guest Artist of hr-Sinfonieorchester.
Together with the orchestra they will give a series of concerts, featuring Fröst’s signature piece Peacock Tales, a clarinet concerto written for him by Anders Hillborg, and Debussy’s Première Rhapsodie for clarinet and orchestra. The concerts take place on 27, 28 February and 1 March at the Alte Oper.
Fröst returns to Frankfurt later in the spring to perform his latest project Retrotopia. It is a ground-breaking concert form in which Martin takes the part of the conductor, soloist and presenter, pushing the boundaries of how classical music and contemporary repertoire are being presented to audiences. Retrotopia was debuted in Stockholm in May 2018 with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra to critical acclaim and most recently was presented in Bamberg.
