MESSIAEN: Les Offrandes oubliées
HOSOKAWA: Violin Concerto (world première)
BEETHOVEN: Symphony No. 3 ‘Eroica’
with Daishin Kashimoto

“From the moment Paavo Järvi raises his arms, there is something hanging in the room that can only be described with the word magic. It is inexplicable why some conductors can conjure up such a fantastic sound from an orchestra like the Berlin Philharmonic and others cannot. Järvi doesn’t actually do much, his gestures are modest, minimalist, he’s not a desk pig. But maybe that’s exactly his secret: Precisely because he is so deeply rooted in his own self, he can let go of the reins and encourage others to work true miracles.”

“ … the celebrated Beethoven conductor showed how structural awareness and music-making characterised by elemental power can be optimally combined in the “Eroica”. The pale pianissimo in the Funeral March was just as inspiring as the wide-ranging crescendos in the opening movement or the tingling motoricism in the Scherzo. Deservedly, there was frenetic applause in the sold-out Philharmonie afterwards.”
