The Philadelphia Orchestra

 

The Philadelphia Orchestra returns to Ann Arbor for a two-performance residency, with music director Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducting the first night and principal guest conductor Nathalie Stutzmann the second.

The Friday night program features U-M alumna Carol Jantsch in Wynton Marsalis’s Tuba Concerto, a brilliant pairing of classical and jazz that received its world premiere in Philadelphia in December 2021 in a concert paired with Brahms’s Symphony No. 1, a coupling that the Philadelphia Inquirer called “one of the top three concerts of Nézet-Séguin’s tenure.”

Saturday’s program includes concertmaster David Kim as soloist in Max Bruch’s Violin Concerto No. 1, along with Missy Mazzoli’s Sinfonia (for Orbiting Spheres), described by the composer as “a piece that churns and roils, that inches close to the listener only to leap away at breakneck speed” and Schubert’s Symphony No. 9. Principal guest conductor Nathalie Stutzmann, “a formidable artistic mind” who has “stunning” chemistry with the orchestra (Philadelphia Inquirer) conducts.
