The St. Louis  Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1880 and has an awesome history and tradition. Over a hundred performances were recorded which has led to sixty Grammy nominations. The orchestra received no less than nine of this much wanted award! Time Magazine ranked it second best orchestra of the US, and their box containing eight live recordings received an Edison.

There will be a free introduction at 7:30 PM, co-sponsored by the Muziekgebouw Eindhoven Friends Association.

This concert is part of the anniversary concerts.

Icelandic pianist Víkingur Ólafsson has made a profound impact with his remarkable combination of highest level musicianship and visionary programs. His recordings for Deutsche Grammophon – Philip Glass Piano Works (2017), Johann Sebastian Bach (2018), Debussy Rameau (2020) and Mozart & Contemporaries (2021) – captured the public and critical imagination and have led to career streams of over 400 million. His latest album, From Afar, is released in October 2022. Now one of the most sought-after artists of today, Ólafsson’s multiple awards include the Rolf Schock Prize for music (2022), Gramophone magazine Artist of the Year, Opus Klassik Solo Recording Instrumental (twice) and Album of the Year at the BBC Music Magazine Awards.

Ólafsson continues to perform as artist in residence at the world’s top orchestras, concert halls and festivals, and work with today’s greatest composers. This season he is performing with orchestras such as the Concertgebouw Orchestra, New York Philharmonic, Berliner Philharmoniker, and now with St. Louis Symphony Orchestra.
