Alexandre Bloch makes his debut with the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin at the Kloster Chorin as part of the Choriner Musiksommer on Sunday 25 August, followed by recording work with the orchestra. Joined by German cellist Daniel Müller-Schott, the programme includes Schumann’s Manfred Overture, Saint-Saëns Cello Concerto No.1 in A minor and Chausson Symphony in B-flat major. This debut follows a number of successful first visits for Alexandre during the 2018/19 season, including appearances with the Tiroler Landstheater Orchester Innsbruck, Gurzenich-Orchester Köln, and his celebrated stage debut for Opéra de Lyon conducting George Benjamin’s Lessons in Love and Violence.
Alexandre’s plans for the forthcoming 2019/20 season with Orchestre National de Lille, where he serves as Music Director, include the continuation of their Mahler Cycle (Symphonies 6, 7, 8 and 9) in Lille with January 2020 seeing the orchestra’s first UK tour in many years, for concerts in London, Leeds, Birmingham, Sheffield and The Sage Gateshead. Guest conducting includes first visits to Het Gelders Orkest, MDR Sinfonieorchester, Bochumer Symphoniker, Queensland Symphony Orchestra and returns to Turku Philharmonic, Royal Northern Sinfonia and Dusseldorfer Symphoniker.
