The Chamber Orchestra of Luxembourg is under the patronage of His Royal Highness the Grand-Duc Héritier.

Crossing Europe

 

It’s with great pleasure that the OCL presents the new programme for 2018-2019. This season, the orchestra invites you on a musical journey of discovery through Europe, with five prestigious concerts that will be held in the Grand Auditorium and in the Chamber Music Hall of the Philharmonie Luxembourg.

Each concert will be an opportunity for exciting encounters with renowned conductors and soloists. At the heart of the programme is the “Grande Région” concert with a composition by Luxembourg composer Claude Lenners, commissioned by the Ministry of Culture, with soloists, the brilliant percussion duo KrausFrink.

We will also have a “French” concert with astounding pianist Joseph Moog with the Concerto No 5 of Saint-Saëns under the direction of the first woman to have won the Georg Solti conducting prize, Shiyeon Sung. A “Germanic” concert with talented violinist Ye-Eun Choi. A “Spanish” concert with guitarist Rossfelder in the Concerto d’Aranjuez. And an “Italian” concert conducted by Carlo Rizzari, Antonio Pappano’s assistant conductor at the famous Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia in Rome.

This journey across Europe reminds us that music transcends borders. Like Mozart composing his famous Symphonie “Paris”, or Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy evoking the Italian landscapes he traversed in his sublime Italian Symphony.

In addition to this five-stage journey, the orchestra will also continue its cooperation with the Kinneksbond and the Metz Opera Theatre, as well as its traditional concert on the Day of the Dead (Allerséilen).
