A war of chefs in Paris?

Are the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées and the Philharmonie, the French capital’s two great symphony concert halls, fighting it out in 2023? The line-up on both sides is very strong, with, Porte de Pantin, the Berliner Philharmoniker led by Kirill Petrenko (2 September), the Orchestre de Paris conducted by Klaus Mäkelä (6 and 7 September) and the Boston Symphony Orchestra conducted by Andris Nelsons (8 September) despite on Avenue Montaigne, three serious contenders such as the Wiener Philharmoniker led by Jakub Hrůša (14th), Riccardo Chailly at the helm of the Orchestra e Coro del Teatro alla Scala (12th) and finally the Bayerisches Staatsorchester conducted by Vladimir Jurowski (21st) round off the calendar for an exceptional new season. François-Xavier Roth, Lahav Shani, Simon Rattle, Antonio Pappano, Thomas Hengelbrock, Yannick Nézet-Séguin, etc. are also expected in the coming month!
