With short notice, Emil will fly to Düsseldorf next week to perform three concertos (December 16, 18 and 19) with Die Düsseldorfer Symphoniker, under the baton of Christian Lindberg. Emil will perform Lindberg’s concerto ”The Erratic Dreams of Mr Grönstedt”, a piece he premiered with the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra in 2013 and has played many times since, with great reviews!
