This spring, Gustavo Gimeno will embark on two tours with the Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg: in April, they will tour Europe with percussionist Martin Grubinger; followed by a Korean tour in May with cellist Jae Min Han.

The European tour will take them to Geneva, Vienna and Budapest. The program opens with György Ligeti’s Concert Românesc – based in part on Romanian folk music –, followed by the centerpiece of the night: Daníel Bjarnason’s spectacular Concerto for Solo Percussion and Orchestra “Inferno”, written specifically for Martin Grubinger. The evening closes with Nikolaï Rimski-Korsakov’s dazzling symphonic poem “Sheherazade”.

For the Korean tour, Gimeno and the OPL will start in Incheon and continue on to Seoul and Gyeongnam before playing their last concert in Daegu. They are joined by South Korean cellist Jae Min Han, who first came to international attention in May 2021 when he became the youngest ever Grand Prix winner of the George Enescu International Competition. He will be performing Antonín Dvořák’s famous Concerto for violoncello. The concerto is followed by Tchaïkovski’s Fifth Symphony, the musical reflection of a troubled time.
