  • The Filarmonica’s 5th Season begins with Mahler’s Fifth
    This season begins with some 1500 season-ticket holders and has become a reference on the musical offers in Madrid. As well, it inaugurates with the great Mahler’s Fifth, one of his most emblematic works of which the Adagietto was immortalized in the film Death in Venice by Luchino Visconti.
  • Debut of the SWR Stuttgart Symphony Orchestra
    The concert is part of the tour of the Spanish presentation organized by Agencia Camera and will take the orchestra, among others, to the Kursaal of San Sebatian, Auditorio of Barcelona (Ibercamera) and the Palau de la Musica in Valencia. The orchestra, recently formed, is the result of fusion of the Radio-Sinfonierorchester Stuttgart of SWR and the SWR Sinonieorchester Baden-Baden und Freiburg, orchestras which have been led by maestros such as Sergiu Celibidache, Sir Neville Marriner and Geroges Prêtre.
  • Christoph Eschenbach for the first time in the Season

To present maestro Eschenbach with one of his works of reference, Mahler’s Fifth is a privilege. Actual musical director of the Kennedy Center  and the National Symphony Orchestra in Washington, he is one of the most prominent conductors of his generation. He has been rewarded with prestigious prizes and acknowledgement in his dedication to music, as the Academy of the Schleswig-Holstein Orchestra.

  • Debut of an American pianist Tzimon Barto with Ravel’s Piano Concert in G major
    Tzimon Barto is one of the most outstanding pianists of the American musical panorama. He has performed with the most prestigious orchestras and was invited by Herbert von Karajan to the Wiener Musikverein and to Salsburg Festival. Debuting with Ravel’s Piano Concert, he was strongly influenced by Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue. He met Gershwin during a trip to United States.
