SOB symphony concerts

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.

Paul Hindemith's plans for an opera about the life and work of the astronomer and mathematician Johannes Kepler (1571-1630) date back to the 1930s. However, they were not resumed until 1949, when Paul Sacher asked him to write a new work for the 25th anniversary of the Basel Chamber Orchestra. The symphony Die Harmonie der Welt, whose title refers to Kepler's 1619 work Harmonice mundi, was premiered in Basel in 1952.

Rachmaninov's Third Piano Concerto is something of an eight-thousand-metre peak for pianists: the death zone of virtuosity. But the work is no superficial keyboard magic! The cool elegance of the melodies, the refined harmonies and the original interweaving of the voices make the piece a rousing musical revelation. We are looking forward to the debut of the exceptional Russian pianist Anna Vinnitskaya and the return of Marek Janowski.
