This December, Alessandro Crudele will make his debut with the Bochumer Symphoniker, one of the finest orchestras in Germany, which was founded in 1919. The concert is part of “BoSy on Tour” and takes place on 14th December, 2019 in Essen.
The programme features Beethoven’s Symphony No. 1 in C major and two concertos with two young and talented soloists: Weber’s Bassoon Concerto Op. 75, with Yuko Suzuki, and Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 27, with Ping-Lien Wang.
This month also marks another significant debut for Crudele: he will return to China to conduct the Shanghai Philharmonic Orchestra in the New Year’s Concert, on 27th December, in the new and futuristic Shangyin Opera House, which has just been inaugurated by Milan’s La Scala in October.
Alessandro Crudele will conduct a rich programme, which features: the Overture from Il barbiere di Siviglia by Rossini; Puccini’s Preludio Sinfonico; Jazz suite No. 2 by Shostakovich; Respighi’s Fontane di Roma; and two pieces by Johann Strauss II: Artist’s Life and Unter Donner und Blitz. During the evening, two pieces by Chinese contemporary composers will also be performed: Sketches in Mountains of Guizhou by Zhu Jianer and the Symphonic Overture No. 1 by the living composer Guan Xia.
Crudele, with the New Year’s Concert in Shanghai, will celebrate the end of his 2019 season, which marked several debuts with important orchestras, including the Orquestra Filarmônica de Minas Gerais in Brazil, where he will be back in 2021, and consolidated his presence in Germany, China and Belgrade as Principal Guest Conductor of the RTS Symphony Orchestra.
