„...NO TRACE OF SHOWMANSHIP.“
Seen and Heard International, Colin Clarke

Heute vor exakt 7 Jahren habe ich meine erste #IGNITION (damals noch 3-2-1 IGNITION) mit den Düsseldorfer Symphonikern dirigiert. Gesternabend und 20 IGNITION-Konzerte später habe ich mich aus der Tonhalle Düsseldorf und nach 5 Jahren auch als Associate Conductor des Orchesters verabschiedet. Herzlichen Dank an das gesamte Team, im Besonderen natürlich Ren Kühn, der die letzten 3 Jahre als Moderator mit mir auf der Bühne stand, die Düsseldorfer Symphoniker und das beste, neugierigste und offenste Publikum, das man sich wünschen kann.

To the day exactly 7 years ago I conducted my first #ignition concert with the Düsseldorf Symphony. Yesterday night and 20 IGNITION concerts later I gave my farewell to the Tonhalle Düsseldorf and finished my position as associate conductor of the orchestra. A big big thank you to the whole team, especially to the host Ren Kühn, who has shared the stage with me for the last 3 years, the Düsseldorf Symphony and the best, most curious and most open audience a conductor can imagine.

Les musiciens de l'Orchestre national de France espèrent que ces quelques notes du Boléro de Ravel, universelles, vous apporteront un peu de chaleur et de réconfort. <3
