The beginning of April sees Semyon Bychkov return to Prague for three performances of Mahler’s Ninth Symphony with the Czech Philharmonic from 3-5 April. A week later, he returns to London to conduct the BBC Symphony Orchestra in an all-Shostakovich programme on 10 April.
At the end of the month, Semyon Bychkov returns to the USA for the first time since last autumn to conduct the US premiere of Thomas Larcher’s Symphony No. 2 Kenotaph paired with Brahms’ Fourth Symphony with the New York Philharmonic (24, 25, 27 and 30 April). Bychkov gave the world premiere of Larcher’s Second Symphony back in 2016 with the Vienna Philharmonic.
