Igor Levit will continue his residency at the BRSO with Mozart’s “Jeunehomme” Piano Concerto (K 271). To the present day it remains incomprehensible how the 21-year-old Mozart, in his final Salzburg concerto, could indulge his wonted jeu d’esprit while plumbing such precocious spiritual depths as in the tragic C minor slow movement. Originally Yannick Nézet-Séguin was meant to stand at the helm until prevented from travelling by covid regulations. His place will be taken by the 24-year-old Finnish conductor Klaus Mäkelä, who advanced this season to become principal conductor of the Oslo Symphony, an orchestra shaped by Mariss Jansons. Framing the “Jeunehomme” Concerto will be two string studies composed for Paul Sacher and his Basle Chamber Orchestra: Igor Stravinsky’s Concerto in D and the popular Divertimento by Béla Bartók.

Change in cast: Klaus Mäkelä will conduct instead of Yannick Nézet-Seguin, as the latter cannot enter Europe due to existing travel restrictions.


Tickets can be purchased by phone, at the ticket office of BRticket and through the BRticket-webshop. Due to restrictions limiting the number of audience members, most programmes will be offered twice per evening, each lasting approximately one hour. Please note that a maximum of 2 tickets per person can be booked for each concert. Ticket sales are subject to change, as the state government’s regulations regarding the number of visitors can change at any time. You can find more information about ticket sales here.
