At the beginning of September David Zinman conducted the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra as part of the Montreux Festival in Switzerland. He performed Brahms Symphony No 2 and a Mozart violin concerto No 5 played by the wonderful young violinist, Arabella Steinbacher whom he described as a huge talent. ‘Le Monde’ described ‘his interpretation, fluid and poetic, and of an incredible intelligence…’.
On 21 September the Tonhalle Orchestra will make a guest appearance in Vaduz in Liechtenstein, and the programme will include works by Beethoven: the Egmont Overture, and the piano concerto No 4 with Marc-André Hamelin as soloist, and Strauss ‘Heldenleben’.
David is now preparing for an interesting and unusual concert of Film Music in collaboration with the Zurich Film Festival. Five aspiring composers of film music have been selected as finalists for the Tonhalle Film Competition, and the judges will make their decision on 27 September in the Tonhalle, and the orchestra will perform the winner’s work. This repertoire will also feature the
following day in the TonhalleLATE concert on 28 September.
