When Eva Ollikainen conducts the orchestral work "Metacosmos" by our Icelandic Creative Chair Anna Thorvaldsdottir, it's a home game, so to speak: the Finn has been Chief Conductor of the Iceland Symphony Orchestra since 2020. With Sibelius' Symphony No. 7, she also has music from her own homeland in her luggage. Jörg Widmann's trumpet concerto "Towards Paradise", which combines sounds, movement and light, also fits into this north-facing programme: it was written for the Swede Hakan Hardenberger, whom The Times described as the "best trumpet player in the galaxy" – and who is now also taking on the solo part in Zurich.
