The new season 2022/23

The much awaited debutants on the podium are Marie Jacquot, Erina Yashima, Antonello Manacorda and Tugan Sokhiev. With great anticipation we are also looking forward to welcome back dear friends like Herbert Blomstedt, Karina Canellakis, Iván Fischer, Sir John Eliot Gardiner, Daniel Harding, Jakub Hrůša, Zubin Mehta, Kirill Petrenko and Christian Thielemann. Simon Rattle, the BRSO’s Chief Conductor designate, will conduct performances of Wagner’s Siegfried in Munich, Hamburg and Luxembourg, which will surely feature as highlights of the season.

The BRSO has engaged Tabea Zimmermann and Kirill Gerstein as their Artists in Residence, and the German violist and Russian-American pianist will feature prominently over the course of the season with a broad and diverse range of artistic contributions.

Among the singers whose performances will be highlights of the coming season are Maria Bengtsson, Julia Bullock, Lucy Crowe, Barbara Hannigan, Anja Kampe, Siobhan Stagg, Wiebke Lehmkuhl, Gerhild Romberger, Peter Hoare, Simon O’Neill, Maximilian Schmitt, Georg Nigl, Michael Volle, Franz-Josef Selig and Georg Zeppenfeld, while instrumentalists will include the violinists Lisa Batiashvili, Augustin Hadelich, Leonidas Kavakos and Gil Shaham, the violoncellist Gautier Capuçon and the pianists Daniel Barenboim, Yefim Bronfman, Rudolf Buchbinder and Seong-Jin Cho.
