The Kammerorchester Basel is recognised as one of the leading chamber orchestras on the classical music scene. Invitations to the most important worldwide concert houses and festivals shape their agenda, as well as their own subscription concerts in Basel.
The orchestra is joined by acclaimed concert pianist, writer, composer and painter, Stephen Hough for a performance of Mendelssohn’s First Piano Concerto: ‘Hough [with his] immaculate timing, pacing and placing of every note, both as glittering soloist and filigree accompanist, is the living advocate of the work’ (The Times).
The programme concludes with Schubert’s Symphony No. 9 – the ‘Great’ – pure musical majesty.
This evening’s concert is conducted by Heinz Holliger who is among the most versatile musical personalities of our time, talented as an oboist, conductor and composer. The programme includes his short composition for strings, Meta Arca.
