Easter Tour 2011

The 2011 Easter Tour, with its 13 concerts and two programmes, which are exclusively dedicated to the work of Gustav Mahler and illuminate all periods of his work, will take the GUSTAV MAHLER JUGENDORCHESTER into seven European countries. With Philippe Jordan conducting, Thomas Hampson will perform selected songs from the period of “Des Knaben Wunderhorn” and will be heard together with the German tenor Burkhard Fritz in the “Lied von der Erde”. In addition, the Symphony no.1 in d major as well as the Adagio from the unfinished Symphony no. 10 in f sharp major will be on the programme.

As always, the most important concert halls in Europe are among the tour stations of the GUSTAV MAHLER JUGENDORCHESTER: three concerts in the Musikverein in Vienna, two in the Fundaçao Calouste Gulbenkian in Lisbon, the Megaron Athens and the Lingotto Turin as well as performances at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées in Paris and in the Auditorio Nacional in Madrid underline the exceptional position of the Gustav Mahler Youth Orchestra. As in 2008 and 2009 the partner for the residency period will be the Festival Interlaken Classics, which will also organise a special concert with the GUSTAV MAHLER JUGENDORCHESTER conducted by David Afkham.

Conductors

Since the 2009/10 season, Philippe Jordan is the music director of the Paris Opera and a guest conductor at all the leading orchestras in Europe and the USA. He conducted the GUSTAV MAHLER JUGENDORCHESTER in 2006 and 2007.


David Afkham, winner of the first THE NESTLÉ AND SALZBURG FESTIVAL YOUNG CONDUCTORS AWARD, is assistant director of the London Symphony Orchestra at the age of 26 and counts as one of the outstanding talents of his generation. In addition to acting as assistant conductor, he conducts the GUSTAV MAHLER JUGENDORCHESTER for the fourth time on the 26 of March 2011 in Interlaken.

Soloists

Thomas Hampson, one of the foremost Mahler experts and interpreters, will be supporting the GUSTAV MAHLER JUGENDORCHESTER. The exceptional American baritone will be singing songs from the Period of “Des Knaben Wunderhorn” and will be performing together with Burkhard Fritz in the “Lied von der Erde”. Thomas Hampson has been on tour with the GMJO in 1995 (with Bernard Haitink) and 207 (with Philippe Jordan).


Burkhard Fritz will be singing the tenor Part in Mahler’s “Lied von der Erde“. He is a member of the Berliner Staatsoper ensemble and performs on all the major stages of Europe. This is the first time Burkhard Fritz is touring with the GUSTAV MAHLER JUGENDORCHESTER.
