Michael Sanderling makes his debut with Orchestre de Paris on Thursday 15 November, where he conducts Beethoven’s Egmont Overture, Frank Martin’s Six Monologues of Jedermann with Matthias Goerne, and Liszt’s Dante Symphony in the Philharmonie.

This season opened with Sanderling’s debut with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra.  Since then, he has also made debuts with Helsinki Philharmonic and Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse with immediate re-invitations to both orchestras. From Paris, he flies to Tokyo where he will conduct the Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra.

Last week, Sanderling performed a special concert with the Dresden Philharmonic to commemorate the Kristallnacht, in which the Dresden Synagogue was set on fire. The program included Bloch’s Baal Shem, Ravel’s Kaddish from Two Hebrew Melodies and the Adagio from Mahler’s 9th Symphony, with musicians of the orchestra performing on violins which once belonged to victims of the Holocaust.
