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.

Camille Saint-Saëns – who also performed several times at the Stadtcasino Basel – was stricken in years when he died in 1921 at the age of 86. Behind him lies an eventful life. He already loses his father as a baby. He enters the world of music as a child prodigy. Later as an adult his two little sons die. After the death of his mother shortly after, he liquidates his apartment in Paris, gives away and sells his furniture and goes underground. He spends fifteen years in a travel fever in ship cabins and train compartments. He travels from North Africa to China, from Russia to America – and composes.

We would like to give you a small insight into Saint-Saëns' symphonic work, both well-known and less well-known, as a tribute to a great composer on the 100th anniversary of his death. Sol Gabetta will perform his two cello concertos. Two commissioned works for our percussion ensemble will provide powerful contrasts to Saint-Saëns' sound worlds.
