Michala Petri is a rare musical talent – a child prodigy, who is often top of mind when you ask people to name a Danish classical musician with an extensively expanded repertoire. A musician who has achieved international fame, and who, with more than 70 CD recordings and 4,000 concerts behind her, should actually be much older, but in 2018, Michala Petri will turn just 60.

With the Tivoli Copenhagen Phil on stage, we'll be celebrating the American conductor and composer Leonard Bernstein, who would have been 100 years old in 2018. The concert will feature composers with various relationships to and inspiration from Bernstein, who epitomised American classical music – music that clearly features alternative traditions to those in Europe.

When 'the Siberian bear' sits at the piano, you know an extraordinary treat is in store – which explains his top popularity as a pianist at the moment – both with and without orchestras. The last time we welcomed Matsuev to Copenhagen, he created a stir in Tivoli by playing Rachmaninov's piano concerto no. 3 with the National Youth Orchestra of the United States of America conducted by Gergiev. This time he will be on stage alone accompanied only by a grand piano, Tchaikovsky and Beethoven.

As usual, Tivoli is full of fun and festivities. The Tivoli Youth Guard will be on parade, playing concerts and taking care of the Tivoli prince and princess. An though Laura, their lady-in-waiting, will also be on duty, the two mischievous youngsters still manage to run off to find out whether there really is a dragon living under Tivoli. The children disappear and then it is the Tivoli Youth Guard's task to free them from the monster.

Summer Classic 2018 presents 27 concerts with Danish and international artists. Look through the program here.
