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.

«At least that's how war sounds to my ears,» the composer Dmitri Shostakovich said about the first movement of his Seventh Symphony. It is not a soundtrack for a martial video game, but a music marked by a real war. It was composed in 1941, when Shostakovich's home town of Leningrad was besieged by the German Wehrmacht. Shostakovich did not write a heroic battle symphony, on the contrary: it was a work that captured the tragedy and inhumanity of war in sound. This music can sound radical and brutal, but also desperate and grotesque.

From a happier world, on the other hand, comes Prokofiev's Second Violin Concerto, which was composed before the outbreak of the Second World War and the Stalinist era of terror. The violinist Vadim Gluzman takes over the solo part and would like to dedicate this performance to the great violinist Isaac Stern, who would have turned 100 this year.

The concert will be followed by the third rendition of the ‹After Concert Lounge› with the accordionist Jovica Ivanovic in the foyer of the Stadtcasino.
