Alpesh Chauhan joins the Orchestre National d’Île de France at the monumental Basilica of Saint-Denis tonight for a performance as part of the prestigious Festival de Saint-Denis, marking his debut both with the orchestra and at the festival. The programme of the concert, which forms part of the festival’s Métis series, includes Walton’s Johannesburg Festival Overture as well as Elgar’s In the South.

The performance comes at the end of another stand-out season for Alpesh, in which he commenced his Principal Conductorship at the Filarmonica Arturo Toscanini Parma, made welcome returns to the Philharmonia Orchestra, BBC Symphony Orchestra, CBSO, Orkest van het Oosten and Maggio Musicale Fiorentino among others, and gave debuts with the Orchestra of Opera North, the RPO, the RLPO and Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony as well as his German symphony orchestra debut conducting Bruckner’s Symphony No. 4 with Düsseldorfer Symphoniker – assessed by Westdeutsche Zeitung as “a new milestone in the recent performance history of the work”.
