"Rhythm comes first," says Santtu-Matias Rouvali, "all music has to groove". This comes as no surprise, as the Finnish conductor, who was born in 1985, once started out as a percussionist - in orchestras, jazz clubs and hard rock bands. It remains to be seen how he can get the orchestra grooving in works by Prokofiev and Tchaikovsky at his Zurich debut. And there is another debut to come at this concert, namely that of South Korean pianist and Chopin Competition winner Seong-Jin Cho, who is not only regarded as a sensitive interpreter, but also as someone with a great sense of rhythmic drive. Fits.
