Eine wundervolle Woche in Paris ist vorbei. Die großartigen Musiker des Orchestre national de France waren, wie immer, die besten Partner, die man sich als Dirigent nur wünschen kann. Ein besonderes Dankeschön gilt natürlich Patrick Messina und Philippe Pierlot, den fantastischen Solisten des Konzerts. Es war mir eine Ehre!

A wonderful week in Paris is over. As always, the great musicians of the Orchestre national de France have been the best partners, you can imagine on stage. Of course my special thanks go to Patrick Messina and Philippe Pierlot, for being two fantastic soloists. It was a real honour for me!

Bon concert demain cher Jesko! Enjoy!


Einige Eindrücke des Konzerts und der Generalprobe der Harry Potter #IGNITION am Dienstag. Die Düsseldorfer Symphoniker und Moderator Ren Kühn waren großartige Partner auf der Bühne und ich freue mich, dass wir das Konzert im Dezember, aufgrund des großen Kartenandrangs, wiederholen.

Some impressions of the Harry Potter #IGNITION concert and dress rehearsal on Tuesday. The Düsseldorfer Symphoniker and Ren Kühn were wonderful partners on stage and I‘m looking very much forward to December, when we will repeat the concert due tue the big ticket run.
