65th season 2020 | 21

Filharmonie Brno Orchestra is entering its 65th season, with two subscription series in the Janáček Theatre, Czech and world premieres, internationally renowned soloists and in particular our now traditional dramaturgy linking together the music of older and more recent periods. We are continuing our celebrations of Beethoven’s anniversary and tours abroad are being planned, including to South Korea and Great Britain.

Music lovers throughout Europe have been for years learning about the vibrant cultural scene in Brno through radio broadcasts featuring the Filharmonie Brno. This season, audiences in Seoul, Graz, Salzburg,Bayreuth, Cologne, London, Cardiff, Birmingham, and Edinburgh, among several others, will experience in person the vibrant music making that is the hallmark of our musicians. We continue our special Beethoven celebration by presenting at our first subscription concert in Besedni dum this great composer‘s three ouvertures to his opera Leonore as a framework to special works by Dvorak and Arvo Pärt. Our season Opener, this year in the magnificent Cathedral of St. Paul & St. Peter, will also feature Pärt in celebration of his 85th birthday, together with Bruckner‘s mighty 5th Symphony.

I am delighted to be able to conduct this season in Brno Czech premiers of symphonies by two very close friends who happen to be among the very most successful and prominent living composers, Thomas Larcher from Austria, and the American Philip Glass. Orchestras world wide are performing works by these unusual musicians who also happen to be great mutual colleagues and friends. I am also excited to continue in Brno my collaborations with the wonderful French violinist Renaud Capucon and the inspired German tenor Christoph Prégardien.

On a personal note I am looking forward as pianist to two chamber music evenings together with the Filharmonie Brno‘s fine wind soloists, as well as a special evening with my wife and piano-duo partner Maki Namekawa in a special program with works by Mozart and Shostakovitch.

This promises to be a great season and I look very much forward to welcoming our very special Brno audience to our concerts.
