Donizetti, Franz von Suppé and P. Mascagni (Overtures Don Pasquale, Light Cavalry, Intermezzo Cavalleria Rusticana), a production of Stravinsky’s A Soldier’s Tale with actor Graham F. Valentine, as well as a highly acclaimed performance of Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite and Ravel’s Ballet Ma mère l’oye, for which Jascha received praise for his “sensitive touch and insight for the two complex and magnificent scores by Maurice Ravel and Igor Stravinsky, which challenged the orchestra’s musical potential and placed it in the limelight“ (Landbote).

Jascha’s 2023/24 season highlights include debuts with the RTV Slovenian Radio Symphony Orchestra, St. Gallen Symphony Orchestra, and Kymi Sinfonietta and Vaasa City Orchestra in Finland, in addition to return engagements with the SWR Symphonieorchester Stuttgart and Filarmonica de Stat Targu Mures in Romania.
