Jean-Guihen Queyras était à la Philharmonie Luxembourg pour un récital comprenant des œuvres de Bach, Kodály, Ligeti, Mason et Stroppa.

Jakub Hrůša – photo Prague Philharmonia

In 2011, Gramophone named him as one of ten conductors “on the verge of greatness“! Jakub Hrůša is Music Director and Chief Conductor of the Prague Philharmonia, Music Director of the Glyndebourne Tour, and Principal Guest Conductor of Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra.
Jakub Hrůša explains us the challenge of conducting three very different orchestras and the difficulty of being guest conductor.
He also briefly describes Rêverie by Scriabine, the concerto for violon and orchestra by Shostakovich and Borodine‘s second symphony.

Jakub Hrůša is conducting the Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg on March 9th at the Philharmonie Luxembourg.
