The Orchestre de la Suisse Romande is delighted to announce its 6th season with Musical and Artistic Director Jonathan Nott. This season, the OSR opens up to new creative collaborations, musical genres, and confirms its reputation in Switzerland and abroad with an impressive range of international guest artists and European tour programme.
This season the OSR promises a voyage of musical discovery under the banner of #VoyagesSonores. It goes off the beaten track, notably offering its annual artist in residence position to Geneva jazz pianist Marc Perrenoud. The Choeur de l’Orchestre de Paris will join conductor-in-residence Daniel Harding, and big names such as Daniele Gatti, Kent Nagano and Khatia Buniatishvili will complete the programme. A reduction in tariffs for young people, a new "Open House" programme and the creation of an Assistant Conductor position testify to the importance of its activity within French-speaking Switzerland.
A destination for music in French-speaking Switzerland
In order to reach as many audiences as possible, the OSR has always made a point of offering prices for all audiences: the entry price of CHF 7 for a subscription ticket - the same price for 20 years - is a clear demonstration of this. This year, new initiatives such as the "Open House" programme and the youth tariff confirm this commitment.
Monumental ninth symphonies
Gustav Mahler fans will be delighted to hear Jonathan Nott, a specialist in the composers works, conduct his Ninth Symphony early in the season. Later, Ludwig van Beethoven's Ninth Symphony will be featured. As in previous seasons, the Musical and Artistic Director will welcome brilliant soloists such as violinists Alexandra Conunova and Viktoria Mullova and the pianist Khatia Buniatishvili.
All that jazz.. Creating new synergies
This season, the OSR has invited Marc Perrenoud from Geneva to be its artist in residence. With more than 800 concerts around the world, both solo and with his trio, as well as a critically acclaimed discography, the pianist is today an emblematic figure on the contemporary jazz scene.
To the top cities in Europe
The 2022-23 season will see the orchestra perform in the top cities in Europe: Jonathan Nott will first take the OSR to Munich in the autumn of 2022 for a world premiere of a work by Rebecca Saunders with the soloists of the Ensemble Intercontemporain. In November 2022, the OSR will go to Budapest, Ljubljana and Brno. For the first time since the beginning of their partnership, the Grand Théâtre de Genève and the OSR will give a stage production in the Czech Republic as part of the Janáček Brno Festival. In February 2023, the Orchestra will make a second tour visiting Düsseldorf, Cologne, Bremen, Antwerp and Lille.
