NEW! Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich in 2019-20

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

2019 Three Choirs Festival in Gloucester 

In remarks accompanying the pathfinder prospectus for the 2019 Three Choirs Festival in Gloucester the Artistic Director, Adrian Partington, commented: ‘Themes and anniversaries aren’t necessarily the best influences on successful programmes.’ I wouldn’t disagree, but even so, it’s surely appropriate that the highly attractive 2019 Festival programme, which has now been launched in full, reflects one or two notable anniversaries. This year the Festival will run from 26 July to 3 August. Read more
