This was the start

The new season also marks the beginning of a new collaboration: for the very first time, music director Paavo Järvi will perform with the Austrian cellist Kian Soltani, who will be the focus artist this season. With Schumann's Cello Concerto, the two will tackle one of the most popular and at the same time most enigmatic works of cello literature. Clara Schumann heard verve, freshness and humour in it; others already wanted to recognise signs of Schumann's mental derangement. Kian Soltani will solve the riddle in his own way: Schumann has always been one of the composers who particularly touch him. In addition, there is Bruckner's Symphony No. 9, another late work – and the continuation of Paavo Järvi's Bruckner cycle, which will also be recorded on CD.
