A PASSION FOR MUSIC
20.01.2023 @ 19:00
Artists now shooting to fame hold us spellbound in the first symphony concert of the spring season. As our guest we welcome Taiwan-born Tung-Chieh Chuang, a conductor whose talent has been demonstrated in a number of competitions and worldwide fixtures. Jiyoon Lee is first concertmaster of the prestigious Staatskapelle Berlin and a soloist whose passionate, brilliant performances both live and on disc have caught the attention they deserve in such quarters as the BBC Music Magazine and Gramophone. Coupled with the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto, a regular audience favourite, are a new work, Swerve, by Osmo Tapio Räihälä, and the second Symphony by Kurt Weill bearing echoes of the political upheaval in 1930s Europe.
