Dan Ettinger will return as Chief Conductor of Stuttgarter Philharmoniker for his seventh season with the orchestra. He will conduct several thrilling programs that will include works by Mozart, De Falla, Saint-Saëns, Dvořák, and many other well-known composers.
One of the main themes of the season is ‘Man vs. Machine.’ On November 16, Mr. Ettinger will help celebrate this topic as he conducts a program of Bruch’s Kol Nidrei, Fazil Say’s Cello Concerto “Never give up” (both featuring cellist Camille Thomas), and Dvořák’s Symphony No. 9 “From the New World”. Another theme of this season involves the celebration of Spanish-style music, and on November 6, Mr. Ettinger will be conducting Brahms’ Symphony No. 4 and De Falla’s El amor brujo and Siete canciones populares españolas featuring the fantastic mezzo-soprano, Edna Prochnik.
Further highlights include Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto and Schubert’s Symphony No. 5 with clarinetist Peter Felhauer presented on September 16, 17 and 18; Saint-Saëns Piano Concerto No. 1 in D major with Fabio Martino on October 30 and 31; and a special concert for children showcasing Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf with narration by Theodor and Timo Brunke on November 25, 26, 27, and 28.
