The collaboration between the OBC and the Mariïnsky orchestra three years ago resulted in ‎one of the biggest successes that L’Auditori has ever seen. We still remember the more than ‎‎10 minutes of applause and shouts of “Bravo!” that Shostakovich’s Fourth Symphony ‎unleashed. This year, Valery Gergiev seeks to repeat the experience with another ‎monumental work: An Alpine Symphony by Richard Strauss. As the critics commented three ‎years ago: "These challenges are only within the reach of someone with the charisma and ‎energy of the Russian maestro, with the ability to combine the synergies of the musicians.”‎

The icing on the cake will be young South Korean pianist Seong-Jin Cho, winner of the ‎Tchaikovsky, Rubinstein and Chopin competitions. He’ll be making his debut at L’Auditori with ‎Liszt's Second Symphony, a mature work which the composer himself dubbed a "symphonic ‎concerto" owing to the constant transformation of the themes he uses and the incorporation ‎of the solo instrument in the orchestra.‎
