Paavo Järvi, conductor
Francesco Piemontesi, piano
The Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich has been reigning supreme on the Zurich music scene since 1868. This level of excellence has been maintained over the past two years by the great Estonian conductor Paavo Järvi, the orchestra’s present artistic director. Lausanne-born composer Richard Dubugnon and pianist Francesco Piemontesi, from Locarno, two Swiss artists who have made their mark on the international scene, share this exceptional line-up. Add a Beethoven piano concerto and Schumann’s sumptuous “Rhenish” Symphony to the bill, and you have all the ingredients of a splendid concert.
