Sometimes you are proud if you can count someone among your friends. Cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras is such a true friend. The friendship between him and the Residence Orchestra arose during the Cello Biennale. During this concert it is time for a first introduction between the grandmaster and chief conductor Anja Bihlmaier. Two great names from the same generation meet in one of the most beautiful cello concertos: Henri Dutilleux's Cello Concerto. Thirty years ago, the French composer's Cello Concerto was last heard in The Hague. An ethical, atmospheric music painting that Jean-Guihen Queyras will bring to life with differentiation in timbre. The cellist received the Anner Bijlsma Award in 2022.

The concert ends with Schumann's Fourth Symphony, originally a loving birthday present for his beloved Clara, when life was still carefree. Anja Bihlmaier leads in a dazzling, dramatic masterpiece.
