Jan Vogler with Friedrich Gulda’s cello concerto in Vienna (June 2024)

Cellist Jan Vogler will travel to Vienna on 27 and 29 June with a special program under the baton of conductor Omer Meir Wellber to play Friedrich Gulda’s concerto for cello and wind orchestra at  Volksoper.

The concerto for cello and wind orchestra by Vienna-born Friedrich Gulda is a rarely performed work, which also stands out because of its special instrumentation. The premiere took place in 1981 with Heinrich Schiff, one of Jan Vogler’s teachers, and Wiener Bläserensemble under the direction of the composer.

Orchestra of the Volksoper Vienna, Omer Meir Wellber

Omer Meir Wellber and Jan Vogler know each other from various projects, such as the CD recording of Pop Songs (Sony Classical, 2022) and concerts at the Dresden Music Festival, among others. On June 22 and 28, Wellber, who has just conducted the new production of Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde by Daniele Menghini at the Teatro Massimo, will conduct Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte at Volksoper Vienna.
