What to do when electric guitars go missing?

Almost unbelievable, but true: Australian conductor Simone Young is actually standing in front of the Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich for the first time. And she has put together an unusual programme for this debut: The centrepiece is "St. Carolyn by the Sea" by our Creative Chair Bryce Dessner, who will also be on stage himself as an electric guitarist. In addition, there are two works from Young's core repertoire, Strauss' "Also sprach Zarathustra" and Stravinsky's "Apollon musagète", in which she can show off her qualities. "You have to have such a strong, clear image of the sound you expect that there is no room for misunderstanding," she once said. That she has these clear ideas – she has proved this time and again in her great career.
