SOB symphony concerts

SOB symphony concerts are organized by the orchestra itself. Their programmes are decided by the principal conductor and the artistic director. Internationally renowned artistes perform as guest soloists, and the orchestra plays under the direction of its principal conductor or inspiring guest conductors. Until the re-opening of the Stadtcasino in 2020/21, the SOB symphony concerts are held in the Basler Münster, Theater Basel und Musical Theater Basel.

6.30pm: Introduction to the concert (in German) in the Foyer of the Theater Basel.

Joseph Haydn’s piano concerts have a tough time nowadays; they are always overshadowed by the works of Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. However, it is a completely other story when it comes to the D major Concerto, which became a virtual hit with his Rondo all' Ungarese.

Nowadays, it is hard to imagine that Georges Bizet’s opera Carmen flopped during its premiere in Paris. The music was not at fault but rather the opera text, which was deemed controversial for that time. Bizet seems to have had a penchant for tragic female figures. Carmen drives a succession of men crazy; however, she prefers to keep her freedom, while in L’Arlésienne a young country lad is driven to take his own life as a result of his unrequited love for a young girl. In his work Orawa, the Polish composer Wojciech Kilar was thinking of the river of the same name and the mountains in the Carpathians – it is a type of pastoral symphony for strings from the late 20th century. A journey through Eastern European, Spanish and French sounds with the German-Japanese pianist Alice Sara Ott and conducted by Michal Nesterowicz.
