3 discoveries and 1 highlight of the season so far

Luca Francesconi's "Duende" - an incredibly colourful and effective violin concerto (Orquestra Sinfónica do Porto (soloist: Ilya Gringolts)
Anna Thorvalsdottir "Aeriatily" - dazzling, meditative, powerful. (BBC Symphony Orchestra) 
Anton Eberl Overture "Queen of the Black Isles" - a rediscovery, not played for over 200 years (MKO)

A personal highlight was certainly the rehearsal week and performance of Gustav Mahler's 9th Symphony with the Copenhagen Philharmonic Orchestra. What an incredible work!



These were turbulent times. Many cancellations, many worries have accompanied us artists in the last few years. I am all the more grateful for the many positive experiences AFTER the lockdown. Here is a selection of the outstanding orchestras that I - having just met - will soon be able to see again: BBC Symphony Orchestra, Hallé Orchestra, Orquestra Sinfónica do Porto, Stavanger Symphony, Tapiola Sinfonietta, Turku Symphony Orchestra. 

See you soon! 


I am looking forward to the CD production with Patricia Kopatchinskaja together with the MKO: We are recording Marton Illé's violin concerto "Vont-tér" this December in Munich!
