Information about the programme

The BRSO is looking forward to its first collaboration with the Polish conductor Krzysztof Urbański, who has been the Chief Conductor of the Orchestra della Svizzera italiana since 2022 and has served as guest conductor of renowned orchestras such as the Münchner and Berliner Philharmoniker, the Dresden Staatskapelle, the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, the London Symphony Orchestra and the New York Philharmonic. Urbański will introduce himself to the BRSO audience with a work particularly close to his heart: Shostakovich’s existential Tenth Symphony. Immediately after Stalin’s death, Shostakovich created in this symphony a harrowing document of the suffering caused by dictatorship and terror, and at the same time a moving self-portrait. In addition, there is a reunion with Evgeny Kissin, who raised his voice against the Russian war of aggression from the very beginning. He will perform Rachmaninov’s Third Piano Concerto, probably the most technically demanding of the composer’s four concertos.
