Susanna Mälkki travels to the East Coast to conduct New York Philharmonic and Boston Symphony Orchestra
Susanna Mälkkireturns to the States this month, making her second return visit to the New York Philharmonic following last year’s acclaimed concerts in which she“led the New York Philharmonic in a performance […] that was so urgent, detailed and exciting” (The New York Times). On 18, 19 and 22 October she conducts a programme of Strauss’ Also sprach Zarathustra, Haydn’s Symphony No.22 “Philosopher” and Unsuk Chin’s Šu, a contemporary concerto for Sheng (Chinese reed instrument) and orchestra, performed by virtuoso Wu Wei.
Susanna then heads to Boston to conduct the Boston Symphony Orchestra on 24 – 26 October. These concerts feature “sensually colourful French music” and the American premiere of Swiss composer Dieter Ammann’s new work for piano and orchestra. The concerto is written for and performed by the German-born Swiss pianist Andreas Haefliger, whose interpretation of the work at its BBC Proms world premiere earlier this year was lauded for “virtuosic displays in the grand Lisztian manner” (Bachtrack).
