Alpesh Chauhan makes his highly anticipated debut with the Seattle Symphony this week, performing two concerts at Benaroya Hall, the orchestra’s home. The all-Brahms first half of the programme is opened with the composer’s Tragic Overture before celebrated violinist Hilary Hahn takes the stage for his epic Violin Concerto. Witold Lutosławski’s orchestral showpiece, the Concerto for Orchestra, which was composed in the 1950s, completes the programme.

Chauhan’s debut in Seattle forms part of an exceptionally busy autumn, which has already seen him conducting the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and Auckland Philharmonia among others, and also includes performances with the London Philharmonic Orchestra at Royal Festival Hall, with the Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale della RAI, Düsseldorfer Symphoniker, the BBC Symphony and Scottish Symphony Orchestras and the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra.
