The Music

The OSR is delighted to welcome Maestro Myung-Whun Chung for the very first time as both conductor of the orchestra and pianist! Recognized not only for his career directing the most prestigious orchestras in the world, Myung-Whun Chung also devotes an important part of his life to ecological and humanitarian causes. In 1996, he received the ‘Kumkuan’, the highest cultural award of the Korean government for his contribution to Korean cultural life, and in 2008 he became the first conductor to hold the position of Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF.

For his first invitation to the OSR, Maestro Chung will share the stage with our soloists Bogdan Zvoristeanu and Léonard Frey-Maibach in Beethoven's Triple Concerto. The 'Eroica' Symphony, a masterpiece by the German composer, will complete the evening.

The concert will be broadcast live on Espace 2 and will be available on streaming after the concert.
