European Tour 2023

For the first time since February 2017, the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra musicians are packing their instruments, updating their passports, and going on an international tour. Music Director Stéphane Denève and the orchestra embark on a four-country, five-city tour of Europe March 23-31, representing St. Louis at some of the world’s top concert venues.

The 2023 tour includes stops at some of Europe’s most-celebrated concert halls, including:

  • Vienna Konzerthaus, March 23 (Vienna, Austria)
  • Centre for Fine Arts, March 26 (Brussels, Belgium, as the finale concert of the Klara Festival)
  • Muzikgebouw Eindhoven, March 27 (Eindhoven, the Netherlands)

One of today’s most sought-after artists, pianist Víkingur Ólafsson, will join the orchestra on tour, performing Edvard Grieg’s Piano Concerto. In addition to Ólafsson’s performances of Grieg’s Piano Concerto, the program includes the rarely performed The Love for Three Oranges Suite by Sergei Prokofiev, and Sergei Rachmaninoff’s Symphonic Dances.

The SLSO invites St. Louisans to hear the tour program at its home in Powell Hall for a one-night-only concert with Ólafsson on Thursday, March 16, 2023, at 7:30pm CST.
