Thierry begins his tenure as Principal Guest Conductor of the Seoul Philharmonic this month, conducting two concerts at Lotte Concert Hall in Seoul on 9 and 10 March 2017. He is joined for the performances by Truls Mørk, who performs Shostakovich Cello Concerto No.1. Brahms Symphony No.1 and Haydn Symphony No.1 complete the programme, which is intended to showcase the flexibility of the orchestra.
Later in the month, Thierry returns to the Royal Flemish Philharmonic, his first return since his debut last season. The programme pairs Debussy La Mer with Wim Hendrickx Aquarius’ Dream. Other concerts include two performances with the Basque National Orchestra at the Musika Musica Festival in Bilbao and two concerts with the Warsaw Philharmonic.
