Truls Mørk with La Suisse Romande, Repin and Järvi
Legendary conductor Neeme Järvi presents his “new” orchestra, Orchestre de la Suisse Romande. Founded in 1918, the orchestra is based at Victoria Hall in Geneva and also performs in opera productions at Geneva’s Grand Theâtre. Neeme Järvi was appointed music director in 2011. The orchestra starts this concert performance with an overture by the Swiss composer Joseph Joachim Raff, and the crowning point comes when the orchestra is joined by two world-class soloists, Norway’s own Truls Mørk on cello and Vadim Repin from Russia on violin, in a performance of Brahms' double concerto for violin and cello and orchestra. The concert concludes with French composer Hector Berlioz' epoch-making orchestral composition, Symphonie fantastique.
