Radio România Muzical recommends you a concert night which blends the rigor of the German spirit with the boldness of the British, as on Friday, 10th of March, the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestrawill be led by conductor Daniel Harding, who was born in Oxford in 1975. The concert will take place at the splendid Hercules Hall, which is located in the very heart of Munich, inside Residenz, the former royal palace of the monarchs of Bavaria.
The unbelievable fast tempo, characteristic of conductor Daniel Harding's style, which is alsoaccompanied by a broad and descriptive sound, shows a touch of novelty for the orchestras he leads and for the audience as well.
A child prodigy on the podium, Daniel Harding conducted for the first time at the age of 13, and three years later he startedhis career as the assistant conductor of Simon Rattle in Birmingham. Since then, he had often been invited to conduct some notable European orchestras such as the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, the London Symphony Orchestra, the Orchestre de Paris, the Vienna Philharmonic and many others. In 2005, he tried his luck with the opera world, conducting the season-opening concert at La Scala, Milan.
