Event Info

The Philharmonic performs Sibelius’s late-Romantic Fifth Symphony, with a finale inspired by a silver-ribbon-like flight of 16 swans and, after exultant washes of sound, ending gloriously and affirmatively with six remarkable hammered chords. Leif Ove Andsnes (“a pianist of magisterial elegance, power, and insight”– The New York Times) is featured in Rachmaninoff’s brilliant Piano Concerto No. 4.

Paavo Järvi opened the 2016–17 season, his second season as chief conductor of Tokyo’s NHK Symphony Orchestra, by conducting Mahler’s Symphony No. 8 in celebration of the orchestra’s 90th Anniversary. His season with the orchestra also  includes the performance of works by Mahler to mark the 30th Anniversary of Suntory Hall, and a spring 2017 European tour, with performances in Berlin, Luxembourg, Paris, Amsterdam, London, Vienna, and Cologne.

As artistic director of the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, Mr. Järvi returned with that orchestra to Asia for performances across Taiwan and Japan in autumn 2016. Throughout the season he will continue a Brahms symphony cycle with the orchestra, in performances throughout Germany and Switzerland. The first recording of the Brahms cycle is scheduled for release on Sony’s RCA label in spring 2017.

In the summer of 2016 Mr. Järvi concluded a six-year tenure as music director of the Orchestre de Paris, and he was named Musical Personality of the Year by the French Critics Association. Highlights with the orchestra included conducting the opening concerts of the new Paris Philharmonie, which were recorded for iTunes; receiving the Sibelius Medal in recognition of his achievements in championing the Finnish composer’s music in France; and the release of his recording of music by Dutilleux on Erato, which received an Echo Klassik Award. 

Guest engagements this season include the completion of his Nielsen Symphony cycle with the Philharmonia Orchestra in London, returns to the Vienna Symphony Orchestra and Staatskapelle Berlin, and performances with Zurich’s Tonhalle Orchestra, the Budapest Festival Orchestra, and L’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia. In spring 2017 he conducts Mozart’s Don Giovanni at Milan’s Teatro alla Scala, as well as concerts with the La Scala orchestra. He also returns to the Frankfurt Radio Symphony, where he is conductor laureate. 

His 2016–17 season concludes with a week of performances in mid-July at the Pärnu Music Festival in Estonia. Mr. Järvi founded the festival in 2010, creating the Estonian Festival Orchestra, which brings together leading Estonian musicians with soloists from Europe’s top-ranking orchestras. Paavo Järvi was named Artist of the Year by both Gramophone (UK) and Diapason (France) in autumn 2015.

Pianist Leif Ove Andsnes has won international acclaim playing recitals and concertos in the world’s leading concert halls and appearing with today’s foremost orchestras. Also an active recording artist and avid chamber musician, he is the founding director of the Rosendal Chamber Music Festival, was co-artistic director of the Risør Festival of Chamber Music for almost two decades, and served as music director of California’s 2012 Ojai Music Festival.

In the 2016–17 season Mr. Andsnes returns to the Boston Symphony Orchestra, undertakes a South American solo recital tour, and joins Marc-André Hamelin for U.S. and European recital tours of music for piano four-hands. Mr. Andsnes’s 2015–16 season included the release of Concerto — A Beethoven Journey, a documentary chronicling his epic four-season focus on the composer’s music for piano and orchestra, which took him to 108 cities in 27 countries for more than 230 live performances. The Beethoven Journey, his acclaimed Sony Classical series with the Mahler Chamber Orchestra, was named one of The New York Times’s Best of 2014, iTunes’s Best Instrumental Album of 2012, and BBC Music Magazine’s 2015 Recording of the Year.
