Joana Mallwitz & Janine Jansen
Information about the programme
At least since 2020, when she gave her rousingly acclaimed début at the Salzburg Festival in Così fan tutte, Joana Mallwitz has figured in the top echelon of international conductors. She entered the festival’s history as the first woman to conduct a new opera production, and became a darling of the audience with her at once engaged and effortless artistry. Since 2018 she has also enriched the music life of Nuremberg as the city’s general music director and impassioned musical communicator, and in 2023/24 she will become the principal conductor of the Berlin Konzerthaus Orchestra. For her eagerly awaited BRSO début she has chosen classic repertoire items that demand utmost precision and a fresh approach. On one of her riveting video tours we can already follow her through the rhythmic complexities of Beethoven’s Seventh. As soloist, the BRSO greets the Dutch violinist Janine Jansen, a welcome guest of the orchestra since 2012.
