Advance booking exclusively through the Zurich Opera House: Ticket-Link

Immediately after Gianandrea Noseda's guest performance at the Tonhalle Zurich, Paavo Järvi will move to the Opera House for the grand finale of their joint Rachmaninoff cycle: together with the Philharmonia Zurich, he will perform Symphony No. 2 and the "Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini" with pianist Francesco Piemontesi. The "Rhapsody" was once written in Switzerland, in the Villa Senar, which Rachmaninoff had built for himself on Lake Lucerne in 1934. After a long dry spell, he found his compositional inspiration again here. And how: The "Rhapsody" is not only one of his most popular works to this day, it is also undoubtedly one of his most diverse: the spectrum ranges from liturgical tone to exuberant virtuoso vitality.
