On 8 November Alpesh returned to Parma to conduct the first concert of La Toscanini's 2019/20 season at the Auditorium Paganini, with a thrilling all Beethoven programme.
Alpesh led the orchestra through Beethoven's Symphony No. 8 and 9, and has since received the following review from Gazzetta di Parma:
" ... Chauhan gets to the heart of this complex and tormented work [Beethoven Symphony No.9] while also transmitting the homogeneity and transparency of the musical texture. This is evident in the control of the dynamics, especially in the “pianissimo” section at the beginning with the sottovoce theme of the violins; a primary element that will then be amplified until the tumultuous crescendo “
The coming season's programme includes Berg's Violin Concerto with Ilya Gringolts, an exciting range of symphonic repertoire including Stravinsky's The Firebird, Holst/ Matthews The Planets, Strauss' Metamorphosen and the completion of the orchestra's Beethoven Symphonic Cycle.
