Orchestre de la Suisse Romande
Jonathan Nott, conductor
Geneva’s renowned Orchestre de la Suisse Romande celebrates its 100th anniversary by making its Proms debut under its English Music Director Jonathan Nott.
The orchestra continues this season’s strand of French music with works by Debussy and Ravel – the mercurial dance-fantasy Jeux, Debussy’s last orchestral work, and a new orchestration of Ravel’s jazz-infused Second Violin Sonata with soloist Renaud Capuçon – as well as a Russian piece synonymous with Paris: Stravinsky’s colourful folk-ballet Petrushka, heard here in its original version.
