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.

06:30 PM: Introduction to the concert (in German) with Emmanuel Tjeknavorian, Kian Soltani and Hans-Georg Hofmann

Tickets

Three newcomers conquer the stage of the music hall in this concert. The 23-year-old Emmanuel Tjeknavorian, Viennese with Armenian roots, has been touring the great European concert halls since he was a prizewinner at the international Sibelius competition in 2015. Kian Soltani studied at the Music Academy in Basel and is a sought-after chamber music partner of Daniel Barenboim, among others. Under the direction of Ben Gernon, two scandalous pieces by Wagner and Bartók are on the programme, they frame the Double Concerto by Brahms and the Dances of Galánta by Kodály. Gernon was a student of Sir Colin Davis and assistant to Gustavo Dudamel at the Los Angeles Philharmonic. In 2013 Gernon won the Salzburg Festival's Young Conductors Award, and recently was one of the youngest conductors in the history of the BBC Philharmonic to become its Principal Guest Conductor.
