SUMMER TOUR 2017 - 30 Years GMJO

The Summer Tour 2017 marks the second great tour project of the GUSTAV MAHLER JUGENDORCHESTER within its 30th anniversary year.

 
Ingo Metzmacher, one of the leading conductors of our time, has already conducted the GUSTAV MAHLER JUGENDORCHESTER in 2003, 2005, and 2009. His return for the Summer Tour 2017 stands for yet another tour project offering an insight into extraordinary concert repertoire: Olivier Messiaen´s  Turangalîla Symphony marks one concert programme, whilst the other concert programme combines Arnold Schoenberg´s rarely performed Begleitungsmusik für eine Lichtspielszene with the Piano Concerto in F by George Gershwin and eminent ballet suites of Béla Bartók (The Miraculous Mandarin) and Maurice Ravel (Daphnis and Chloë). Works by Antonín Dvořák (In Nature´s Realm) and This Midnight Hour, a new piece by British composer Anna Clyne, complete the extensive repertoire of the Summer Tour 2017.
 
The world-famous French pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet returns to the GUSTAV MAHLER JUGENDORCHESTER after his first guest-appearance in 2013. For this project, he collaborates with Ingo Metzmacher for the very first time and performs both Olivier Messiaen´s Turangalîla Symphony and George Gershwin´s Piano Concerto in F. Jean-Yves Thibaudet has already recorded both works for CD, winning highest international acclaim.
 
 

Valérie Hartmann-Claverie
 is one of the leading virtuosos of the Ondes Martenot, an electronic instrument that was first developed in the 1920´s and which was often used by composers like Olivier Messiaen, Arthur Honegger, and Edgard Varese. Many of Valérie Hartmann-Claverie´s concerts and recordings, also of Messiaen´s TurangalîlaSymphony, are widely regarded as interpretative milestones. 
 

The rehearsal period in the residency partner city Bolzano / Bozen, which guarantees the summer rehearsal periods of the GUSTAV MAHLER JUGENDORCHESTER for many years - inclusive of a special Chamber Music concert with ensembles of the GUSTAV MAHLER JUGENDORCHESTER - , opens the extensive Summer Tour 2017. 



After this, a second rehearsal period leads the GUSTAV MAHLER JUGENDORCHESTER for the first time to the new residency partner city Pordenone (supported by the Autonomous Region Friuli Venezia Giulia). Following the initial concerts in Bolzano / Bozen, the GUSTAV MAHLER JUGENDORCHESTER starts its Summer Tour 2017. 



In addition to the traditional annual appearances at the Salzburg Festival,  the Amsterdam Concertgebouw, the Berlin Konzerthaus, and the Dresden Semperopera – upon invitation of the Staatskapelle Dresden, Partner Orchestra of the GUSTAV MAHLER JUGENDORCHESTER -  , the GUSTAV MAHLER JUGENDORCHESTER makes its debut at the iconic Hamburg Elbphilharmonie which was opened in January 2017.
 


The opening concerts of the MiTo Festival, with two concerts at the Teatro alla Scala in Milano and the Teatro Regio in Torino, and of the concert season at the Teatro Filarmonico in Verona, mark another high point of the Summer Tour 2017. 













For the first time ever, the GUSTAV MAHLER JUGENDORCHESTER appears at the Beethovenfest Bonn, and the final concert at the Dvořák Festival in Prague, which marks the return of the GUSTAV MAHLER JUGENDORCHESTER to the Prague Rudolfinum (after more than 20 years), concludes the Summer Tour 2017. 

Lorenzo Viotti, Assistant Conductor since 2016/17 and very successfully appearing with the GUSTAV MAHLER JUGENDORCHESTER for the first time in Lisbon in March 2017, conducts two special concerts within the Pordenone residency: Franz Schubert: Symphony No. 7 (Unfinished) and Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy: Symphony No. 5 (Reformation) are performed at the historic Basilica di Aquileia and at the Duomo di Tolmezzo.
