„...NO TRACE OF SHOWMANSHIP.“
Seen and Heard International, Colin Clarke
Jesko Sirvend is the winner of the Yevgeny Svetlanov Conducting Competition 2022 in Monaco, as a result of which he was invited immediately to concerts with both the Orchestre Philharmonique de Monte-Carlo and the Belgian National Orchestra in Brussels. In the 2022/23 season he will, among other things, perform in his first collaboration with the Bochumer Symphoniker as well as his German opera debut at the Chemnitz Theater with “Hansel and Gretel”, this one being a re-invitation after his successful debut with the Robert Schumann Philharmonic Orchestra in 2019.
After almost all planned concerts and projects for the 2020/21 and 2021/22 seasons had to be canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it was all the more pleasing that Jesko Sirvend took over at short notice as assistant to Kazuki Yamada in Alban Berg’s Wozzeck at the Opéra Monte-Carlo in 2022.
