Orchestra: Orchestre National de Lille

Founded in 1976 on the initiative of Jean‐Claude Casadesus and the Regional Council for the Nord / Pas‐de‐Calais and with government support, the Orchestre National de Lille assumes an ambitious artistic programme aiming at the widest possible audience, performing a symphonic repertoire, giving prominence to contemporary work, and promoting young talent, cultural activities and educational projects. An outstanding ambassador for its region and the French culture across four continents and thirty countries, the orchestra has established itself as one of the leading orchestras in France, and is regularly featured in broadcasts on radio and television, paying special attention to releases of new works.

Violin: Esther Yoo

Esther Yoo started out on her way to the top international concert halls at the age of 4 when she began to study the violin. Since the age of 6 she has lived in Belgium, where she graduated from the prestigious Brussels International School of Music. She continued in Munich and at present is completing her studies at the prestigious Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel in Brussels. She became the focus of world attention particularly after winning at 16 third prize in the prestigious Jean Sibelius Violin Competition, being the youngest prize winner in the history of that event. At 19 she has to her credit a whole cluster of solo concerts and performances with world‐famous orchestras including the Finnish Radio Orchestra, the Helsinki and Seoul Philharmonics, the Scottish BBC Orchestra, and the Czech Chamber Orchestra of Czech Virtuosi in many international concert halls including the Royal Albert Hall and Carnegie Weill Recital Hall in New York. Critics have admired in particular her perfect intonation, her virtuostic technique, and her enormous musicality.

Conductor: Alexandre Bloch


The Concertgebouw in Amsterdam was built as a result of a public campaign aimed at financing a new Philharmonic hall. A grand Neoclassical concert hall topped with a symbolic Apollo´s lyre, it opened in 1888. In the late 20th century the Concertgebouw was renovated in order to improve the acoustics and add more space for visitors. The magnificent organ, after almost a century of service, was also restored and modernised. The Concertgebouw hosts around 600 concerts every year, ranging from big symphonic performances to jazz and pop concerts. Conveniently located at the beautiful Museumplein (Museum Square) with the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh museum right next to it, everyone will find something to their taste in one of the finest concert halls in the world!
