Artist in Residence 2018-19

Emmanuel Pahud
LuganoMusica's tradition of welcoming each season a prominent artist in residence will continue in 2018-2019. Following Russian pianist Daniil Trifonov and German violinist Julia Fischer, Emmanuel Pahud is the next outstanding soloist to be our new programme's guest. Principal flute of the Berliner Philharmoniker, Emmanuel Pahud also enjoys an extensive international career as soloist and chamber musician. He will display his extraordinary versatility in the course of the three concerts he will be giving in Lugano. Pahud is equally at ease in the traditional repertoire and with contemporary music, including new pieces he has commissioned for his instrument, and he firmly believes that the future of music will always rely on a mixture of tradition and novelty.

The notion of "tradition" should not apply to a static idea of the past, nor should it deny progress, but should be related to "evolution". Emmanuel Pahud shares this attitude with Claudio Abbado and Sir Simon Rattle, the two former chief conductors of the Berliner Philharmoniker with whom he worked. In the course of LuganoMusica's programme, Pahud will first appear in a trio (with harpsichordist Trevor Pinnock and cellist Jonathan Mason) for a baroque evening centred on Bach sonatas. He will then join an excellent and mainly French wind ensemble for a concert devoted to 19th-century Russian, German and French repertoire. He will finally be the soloist of Eric Montalbetti's Flute Concerto , which he will premiere in Lugano accompanied by the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande and its chief conductor Jonathan Nott.
