European tour with Yannick Nézet-Séguin

A short trip through Europe is our first tour in 2019. We will be joined by conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin, who has been a regular guest and good friend of the orchestra since his debut in October 2010. The tour takes us to four newly-built concert halls that have been completed within the last five years: the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, the National Forum of Music in Wrocław, the NOSPR Concert Hall in Katowice and finally the Philharmonie in Paris. The programme includes works by Debussy and Prokofiev.

En route with Rainer Seegers

Rainer is not only a legend as principal timpanist, but also a world-renowned expert for moths. Magdalena Zieba-Schwind and Adam Janisch had the chance to join him during his visit at Deyrolle, a very special shop for the preparation of animals, who have passed away in zoos.

On the day of our arrival, the double bass group went to a typical Polish restaurant and ate Bigos and Zurek. The next morning we got a great guided tour with Dr. Maciej Wronecki.
