Intro with Pekka Kuusisto

At the end of the season, there is a debut: for the first time, our orchestra plays under the direction of Joana Mallwitz, who has been one of the most sought-after conductors at least since her performance of Mozart's "Così fan tutte" at the Salzburg Festival in 2020. Also among the most adventurous: Mahler's Symphony No. 1 is always a fascinating journey through very different sound worlds. And Bryce Dessner's minimally inspired and maximally thrilling Violin Concerto can only be described as a trip. The violinist Pekka Kuusisto, who has already played the premiere, will be with us. For him, this is the second performance with the orchestra. After the first one in October 2019, the Tages-Anzeiger wrote: "The audience reacted as if they wanted to found a Kuusisto fan club right away."
