Andrei Feher makes UK debut with the BBC Symphony Orchestra
Andrei Feher marks his UK conducting debut on 19 June 2019 in concert with the BBC Symphony Orchestra at the BBC’s famous Maida Vale Studios.
Feher opens the concert with the Divertimento from Stravinsky The Fairy’s Kiss. The Divertimento is a concert suite drawn from Stravinsky’s ballet, which was based on Hans Christian Anderson’s The Ice Queen. Throughout the ballet, Stravinsky paid homage to Tchaikovsky, borrowing from several of his predecessor’s songs and piano pieces. Following the Divertimento, Feher conducts Poulenc Sinfonietta, a four-movement work composed in 1947.
The performance will be recorded for future broadcast on BBC Radio 3.

Feher received outstanding reviews following his concerts with the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony last season:
“He was simply a joy to watch… a monumentally talented conductor”
MGR Audio, November 2017
“Feher has something that is hard to define, an ability to connect with his players, using their skills as if they were the piano and he the pianist. He knew exactly where to soften the tones, where to build excitement and the musicians responded. The audience, dead quiet even between movements, could hear every note, every musical nuance and it was breathtaking.”
