Season Preview: 2019-20 Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich

Paavo Järvi (c) Gaëtan Bally

This is the first season with Paavo Järvi as Chief Conductor and will clearly have a strong Nordic flavour, just as one would expect: Järvi will conduct (and record) all Tchaikovsky’s symphonies. To open the season (2,3 and 4 October), Sibelius’s epic Kullervo. And, as part of the Zurich Festival, a Shostakovich First Symphony, with the Elgar Cello Concerto in the first half (soloist Steven Isserlis). Järvi will also conduct Nielsen’s Second Symphony as part of his newly formed Conductors’ Academy (which he has started in his home town of Pärnu, Estonia). The season ends (19 and 21 June 2020) with a semi-staged performance of Fidelio. Read more
