Go behind the scenes of the first editions of the international competition for women conductors, with two documentaries, and pair the films with the full performances of the winners: Beatriz Fernández Aucejo, Anna Sułkowska-Migoń and Rebecca Tong.

In September 2020, Rebecca Tong, American-Indonesian conductor, won the first prize in the La Maestra competition for female conductors. Today, Rebecca Tong is back at the helm of the Orchestre de Paris!

Programme:
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart - Oboe Concerto
Gustav Mahler - Symphony No. 4

For the first part of this concert, Rebecca Tong and the Orchestre de Paris are joined by Alexandre Gattet. Together, they perform Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's Oboe Concerto. An emblematic work of the oboe repertoire, this is the only concerto Mozart dedicated to this instrument. It was premiered in 1777 by Giuseppe Ferlendis, musician at the Salzburg Royal Chapel.

The second part of the evening is dedicated to Mahler, whose Fourth Symphony the Orchestre de Paris performs. In radical contrast to its predecessors, this simple score allows Malher to express his fascination for nature. To carry the angelic lied that concludes this work, Rebecca Tong calls upon the soprano Sabine Devieilhe. We could not have dreamed of a better performance.
