Summer Tour 2011

The 2011 Summer Tour brings about a renewed encounter with two distinguished artists of our time. Following the 2008 Summer Tour, Sir Colin Davis returns to the podium of the GUSTAV MAHLER JUGENDORCHESTER for the second time. At his side is Susan Graham, the American mezzo-soprano who is a regular and sought-after guest on all important stages of the world; her first tour with the GUSTAV MAHLER JUGENDORCHESTER was in the summer of 2006.

Stravinsky’s Symphony in Three Movements, Ravel: Shéhérazade and Tchaikovsky’s Fourth Symphony will be heard at four concerts, starting with performances during the long-standing residency partnership at Bolzano, followed by the Semperoper at Dresden – as every year by invitation of the Staatskapelle Dresden – and finally at the BBC Proms in London.

In advance to these highlights, David Afkham, who has been Assistant Conductor of the GUSTAV MAHLER JUGENDORCHESTER since 2009 and who was the first recipient of the Nestlé and Salzburg Festival Young Conductors Award (YCA) in 2010, will perform Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto together with the solo clarinetist of the GUSTAV MAHLER JUGENDORCHESTER, Aljaž Beguš. The programme of this special concert also includes Tchaikovsky’s Symphony no. 5.

In addition, the new collaboration between the GUSTAV MAHLER JUGENDORCHESTER and the Salzburg Festival that was established in 2010 will continue with an eagerly anticipated special concert on August 13, 2011, at which the orchestra will play under the baton of this year’s winner of the Nestlé and Salzburg Festival Young Conductors Award.

Conductors

Sir Colin Davis collaborates with the leading orchestras and opera companies of the world. Accoladed and showered with awards, the Staatskapelle Dresden appointed him as the orchestra’s first and, up to today, its only honorary conductor. In addition, he has served as President of the London Symphony Orchestra since 2007. Following a project in 2008, this is the second time Sir Colin is touring with the GMJO.


David Afkham, winner of the first THE NESTLÉ AND SALZBURG FESTIVAL YOUNG CONDUCTORS AWARD, is assistant director of the London Symphony Orchestra at the age of 26 and counts as one of the outstanding talents of his generation. In addition to acting as assistant conductor, he conducts the GUSTAV MAHLER JUGENDORCHESTER for the forth time on March 26th 2011 in Interlaken.

Soloists

The GUSTAV MAHLER JUGENDORCHESTER will be joined at the 2011 Summer Tour by Susan Graham, one of the pre-eminent opera and recital singers of our time. A compelling and versatile performer on the opera and concert stage, she is celebrated as an expert of the French repertoire. With the GMJO, she will be heard in Ravel’s Shéhérazade. This is Susan Graham’s second tour, following the 2006 Summer Tour.
