Season presentation

Under the direction of Michael Schønwandt from Denmark, 2023 has a distinctly Danish air. In August, the OFJ will be going to Aalborg and Ribe, to perform works by the Danish composer Rued Langgaard.

In parallel to the year’s emblematic project, 2023 is also the year of the orchestra’s new residency in Bourgogne-Franche-Comté, at the Saline Royale d’Arc-et-Senans and the Opéra de Dijon. The orchestra will work on Symphony N° 2 by Jean Sibelius, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s Symphony N° 4,  Cécile Chaminade’s Callirhoë and Symphony N° 5 by Karl Amadeus Hartmann. This year, pianist Alexandre Tharaud is the guest soloist in Maurice Ravel’s  Concerto in G major, which he will perform this year in France and abroad, and this winter at the Philharmonie de Paris.
