Philharmonic concerts

RUSSIA

This season’s Philharmonic Concerts will focus on great 19th- and 20th-century Russian composers, combining central works of the repertoire such as Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto or his Symphony No. 5 with seldom heard masterpieces like Dmitri Shostakovich’s large-scale 10th Symphony. Besides our General Music Director Fabio Luisi, who will conduct three of the seven evenings, the concerts – all of which will be given at the Opera House – will also showcase young conductors and solo instrumentalists on their way to really great careers. The Venezuelan Rafael Payare, for example, is one of the current shooting stars on the conducting scene, and the Russian pianist Anna Vinnitskaya, who lives in Hamburg, has stepped up to the world’s concert podiums since winning the prestigious “Reine Elisabeth” music competition in Brussels five years ago.


The Philharmonic Concerts are supported by Evelyn and Herbert Axelrod

La Scintilla Concert Series

No other operatic stage in the world has the good fortune to possess its own, established ensemble for historically informed performance than Zurich Opera House with its Orchestra La Scintilla. As of this season, we shall take this special feature, of which we are very proud, into account by presenting a concert series performed exclusively by our La Scintilla musicians. For not only in the classical and baroque operatic repertoire does playing on original instruments open new horizons for interpretation; the symphonic repertoire and chamber music also benefit from the virtuoso energy of historic performance practice. The four concerts will offer a broad repertoire, ranging from an evening featuring arias written for the famous castrato Senesino to Mozart’s Haffner Symphony and Bach’s instrumental concertos.

Song recitals

A song recital really is the ultimate test for a singer to prove that they have reached maturity, by displaying their skills of interpretation and mastery of voice technique. Since the repertoire ranges from baroque to jazz, there is something to suit everyone’s taste in this rich and varied cycle.
