We welcome back the Zurich Chamber Orchestra following its appearance in the 2013-14 series. This season the orchestra brings with it two extraordinarily talented soloists.

It is joined by Alison Balsom, whose accolades include the 2013 Gramophone Artist of the Year and three-time winner at both the Classic BRITS and the Echo Klassik Awards. It is these achievements that have gained her an international reputation and her position as one of the world’s greatest trumpeters. She performs one of the most popular, and technically demanding, trumpet concertos.

After the interval, the award-winning pianist Gabriela Montero performs Mozart’s sublime and melodic Piano Concerto No. 14 and joins Alison for Shostakovich’s Concerto for Piano and Trumpet. Gabriela’s visionary interpretations and unique improvisational gifts have won her a devoted following around the world.
