Matthew Halls
Oregon Bach Festival


Versatile is the perfect description for British conductor Matthew Halls. He first came to prominence as a keyboard player and early music conductor, but Halls is now better known for his dynamic and intelligent work with major symphony orchestras and opera companies, and for his probing and vibrant interpretations of music of all periods. He brings the Mozarteum Orchestra of Salzburg, the group formed by Mozart’s widow Constanze and their two sons, to Troy, Thursday night, December 1, as part of the 120th season of Troy Chromatic Concerts. Symphonies by Schubert and Beethoven, plus the Horn Concerto #1 of Richard Strauss with soloist Radovan Vlatkovic.
