Change in the concert: Due to the new Corona regulations, the participation of Kristian Bezuidenhout was unfortunately not possible. We thank Els Biesemans for her spontaneous acceptance to take over the concert.
On a trip to London, a young Mozart once encountered Johann Christian Bach, son of Johann Sebastian. A witness at the time reported that the latter sat the young prodigy on his lap and together they «played an entire sonata with such precision that anyone not watching would have believed that the piece was played by just one person…»
The La Scintilla Orchestra brings together these two composers bound by a respectful friendship in one concert, with the programme rounded out by a work by early classical maestro Carl Philipp Emmanuel Bach.
The ensemble is an independent entity within the Zurich Opera House which specialises in historical performances, and received the Echo Klassik award for its recording of the opera «Norma» with legendary soprano Cecilia Bartoli.
