The next Symphony Night premiere

Experience the next concert on the streaming platform on Saturday, 2. September 2023 from 8pm.

In this Symphony Night Premiere, the Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich gives a guest performance in one of Europe's most renowned concert halls: the Great Hall of the Musikverein Vienna. The concert, conducted by Music Director Paavo Järvi and featuring Antoine Tamestit as soloist, was recorded at the end of January 2023.

Antoine Tamestit shines in Berlioz's "Harold en Italie". In addition, Brahms' Piano Quartet No. 1 in the orchestration by Arnold Schönberg can be experienced. The Austrian press was enthusiastic. The Kurier found: "When a conductor who is always in search of the ideal sound, an orchestra that follows him with devotion in every phase and a virtuoso who leads into other worlds with the truthfulness of his playing come together, then extraordinary things can happen. This is what happened at Paavo Järvi's guest performance with 'his' Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich and violist Antoine Tamestit at the Vienna Musikverein." And in the Standard at the end of January, one could read: "What the Tonhalle Orchestra with its brilliant and at the same time expressive sound elicited from Arnold Schönberg's ingeniously orchestrated score was a true joy."
