This season, Toulouse will welcome Christian Zacharias as artist in residence. To begin his term, he will delight listeners once again with an evening of piano at the Piano Festival aux Jacobins after the widely acclaimed success of last year’s performance. When the new season gets underway soon after, he will join the Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse as a soloist to perform Beethoven’s 5th piano concerto under Tugan Sokhiev. He will also be presenting this musical gem at Bonn’s renowned Beethoven Festival. Ending his residency on a high note, Christian Zacharias will take to the stage in Toulouse both as conductor and soloist. The programme for his concerts in March 2017 will feature works by Schubert and Mozart.
