Esa-Pekka Salonen has a restless innovation that marks him as one of the most important artists in classical music. Salonen is the Principal Conductor and Artistic Advisor of the Philharmonia Orchestra and Conductor Laureate for the Los Angeles Philharmonic, where he was Music Director from 1992 until 2009. This season will find him as the Marie-Josée Kravis Composer-in-Residence at the New York Philharmonic, a three-year position. He is Artistic Director and cofounder of the annual Baltic Sea Festival, which invites celebrated artists to promote unity and ecological awareness among the countries around the Baltic Sea.

Salonen takes the Philharmonia Orchestra to the Edinburgh International Festival, the BBC Proms, on tour in Switzerland and France, and will lead the “Myths and Rituals” festival, an exploration of Stravinsky's work that continues into next season. He will make guest appearances with the North German and Bavarian radio symphony orchestras; the New York, Vienna, and Los Angeles philharmonics; the Orchestre de Paris, and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, in addition to conducting Strauss's Elektra at the Metropolitan Opera, and Bartók's Le Château de Barbe-Bleue and Poulenc's La Voix Humaine at the Paris Opera.

Salonen's work combines intricacy and technical virtuosity with playful rhythmic and melodic innovations. His pieces for symphony orchestra include LA Variations (1996), Foreign Bodies (2001), Insomnia (2002), Wing on Wing (2004), and Nyx (2011), as well as two concertos: for pianist Yefim Bronfman and for violinist Leila Josefowicz. The latter was awarded the prestigious Grawemeyer Award and was featured in a 2014 international Apple ad campaign for iPad. In 2014 the Tonhalle Zurich Orchestra, where he was the first-ever Creative Chair, premiered Karawane for orchestra and chorus, to great acclaim. Karawane will be performed this season by the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and the New York Philharmonic. 

Salonen and the Philharmonia have curated landmark multi-disciplinary projects, such as the award-winning RE-RITE and Universe of Sound installations, which allow the public to conduct, play, and step inside the Philharmonia with Salonen through audio and video projections. Salonen also drove the development of an app for iPad, The Orchestra, which allows the user unprecedented access to the internal workings of eight symphonic works.

Matices del destino: Berg y Beethoven unidos por invisibles hilos

La segunda parte de la visita de Esa-Pekka Salonen con la Philharmonia Orchestra a Madrid nos deparó un programa que se abría en dos direcciones, futuro y pasado.

Mahler minimalista y revolucionario de Salonen

La Philarmonia y su director, Esa-Pekka Salonen, propusieron un Mahler que se mira a sí mismo a través de nosotros.

"¿Emperador o Übermensch?: Salonen, Aimard y Philharmonia Orchestra

Cuerda y metal se elevaron por encima del contrapunto reservado a maderas y entablaron una conversación in crescendo, generando también espacios para la fantasía -el engarce con Aimard siempre perfecto- y la tensión dramática.

Les surprises du chef ! Salonen remplace Sokhiev à la Philharmonie

Appelé à la rescousse pour diriger l'Orchestre de Paris, le chef finlandais n'a pas souhaité diriger le Troisième de « Rachma » ; Lukas Geniušas a donc choisi le Concerto en sol de Ravel. Bonne pioche !

Beethoven keeps the flame burning
