Andrew Manze

“[Osborne] and Manze seem to share a touch that’s lucid, fresh and brilliantly plain-speaking.”

Guardian (London)

The Festival Orchestra’s kindred spirit Andrew Manze returns for his third summer, with his frequent collaborator, pianist Steven Osborne, set to shine in Beethoven’s heroic “Emperor” Concerto.

There is no late seating.

This performance is approximately one hour and 40 minutes with one intermission.
