Kent Nagano | Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal

April 2009 - May 2009

In April 2009, ICA organised a tour with Kent Nagano and the splendid and much recorded Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal. Kent became Music Director of the Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal from the 2006-2007 season and 2009 marked the Orchestra's 75th anniversary year. This was Kent Nagano's first major European tour with his new orchestra and it attracted substantial international publicity. Participating cities included Baden-Baden, Barcelona, Hamburg, Luxembourg, Madrid, Paris, Valencia, Vienna and Zagreb. The ambitious and wide-ranging programme included works to showcase the orchestra's versatility and virtuosity: Berlioz's Symphonie fantastique, Mahler's Das Lied von der Erde (soloists Klaus Florian Vogt and Christian Gerhaher), Strauss' Ein Alpensinfonie and Bartók's Suite from the Miraculous Mandarin, alongside works by Mendelssohn, Tan Dun and Debussy. The Orchestra will return to Europe in the summer of 2011 for a festivals' tour.
