La Capitale d’été 2023, Baden-Baden
2nd - 10th July 2023
It is always with great pleasure that we return to our summer residency at the Baden-Baden Festspielhaus with Yannick Nézet-Séguin. Last year, we celebrated the 10th anniversary of our yearly collaboration which, over the years, has resulted in critically acclaimed recordings of five of Mozart’s late operas, Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 20 with Seong Jin Cho, “Visions of Prokofiev” with Lisa Batiashvili and our latest release, Clara Wieck-Schumann’s Piano Concerto No. 1 and Robert Schumann’s Piano Concerto with Beatrice Rana – all for Deutsche Grammophon.
This year, we will complete our Brahms symphony cycle with Symphonies Nos. 3 and 4 on 7th July. In July 2022, we had recorded Symphonies Nos. 1 and 2 and Deutsche Grammophon is planning to release the full cycle some time next year. We will also perform a chamber music concert on 8th July with Yannick Nézet-Séguin on the piano, the COE’s principal clarinet Romain Guyot and COE members Lorrenza Borrani and Maia Cabeza (violin), Nimrod Guez (viola) and Will Conway (cello). We will perform one more symphonic concert on 9th July featuring Lisa Batiashvili in Brahms’s Violin Concerto in D.
