We are excited to announce Orchestre de la Suisse Romande as PENTATONE’s Orchestra of the Season January – June 2015.
 
We at PENTATONE are very proud to be able to collaborate closely with this Switzerland's globally acclaimed orchestra for many years now, producing fine recordings including the last two remarkable ‘dance’ recordings: Bizet- L' Arlésienne Suites/ Fauré - Masques et Bergamasques/ Gounod - Faust Ballet Music  and Richard Strauss-Liszt-Korngold-Busoni-Schreker
 
Founded in 1918 by Ernest Ansermet, the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande (OSR) has 113 musicians. Since September 2012, Neeme Järvi is the Artistic and Music Director, with Kazuki Yamada as Principal Guest Conductor. Jarvi is the succesor of Marek Janowski who was the Music Director of the orchestra from 2005 until 2012. The OSR has toured throughout the world, performing in the most famous concert halls and at major festivals in Europe.
 
As the general manager Henk Swinnen explains it, OSR has a rich history, certainly, but the OSR is  also an ensemble with huge potential, and one that is clearly willing to face the new challenges of these times.
 
We invite you to follow their journey closely and get all intimate and cosy while we are slowly revealing  about this fantastic recording – in collaboration with Arabella Steinbacher and Charles Dutoit - we are releasing in summer.
