Chief Conductor Jaime Martín and Ireland’s National Symphony Orchestra have announced the continuance of their fruitful relationship for two additional seasons. The news was part of their season announcement celebrating the orchestra’s 75th anniversary.
The 2022/23 “A New Season. A New Beginning” is the NSO’s first full season since the pandemic and its first since its formal transition to the National Concert Hall. Martín will conduct nine of the 33 concerts as well as its 75th birthday celebration. Jessica Cottis, Mihhail Gerts and Jonathon Heyward will also conduct in a season that includes performances by pianist Federico Colli, violinist Nemanja Radulović and soprano Anna Devin.
Jaime Martín said:
“It is a real pleasure for me to continue as Chief Conductor of the National Symphony Orchestra for two more seasons. I am incredibly excited with the programmes which we have put together for 2022-2023 involving wonderful artists from around the world. I am also very happy to explore more of Ireland with our performances around the country, as well as in the beautiful acoustics of the National Concert Hall.
“Over the last two years we have all had to be flexible in order to bring live concerts to the homes of our loyal audience and to an increasing number of online followers. With the new partnership between the National Symphony Orchestra and the National Concert Hall we are developing a programme with a huge variety of music of all styles: something for everyone.
“I love the sound of the NSO, the amazing walks by the sea in Dublin, meeting our audience in the streets and talking about past and future concerts. I am so looking forward to the next few years as Chief Conductor.”
