Jun Märkl conducts Tonkünstler Orchestra in two concerts at the Vienna Musikverein

Jun Märkl returns to Austria this month for two concerts with the Tonkünstler Orchestra at Vienna’s celebrated Musikverein on 25 and 27 May, followed by a third concert in St Polten on 26 May.

Märkl, who critics have called a “Debussy expert…audibly oriented towards the French ideal of clarity”, will perform a programme based on adaptations of Maurice Maeterlinck’s tragic play Pelléas and Mélisande, with excerpts from Debussy’s opera and Schoenberg’s symphonic poem, both of the same name.

The concerts feature soloists Stella Doufexis (mezzo-soprano), Nikolay Borchev (baritone) and Cornelius Obonya (recitation).
