One of the finest Chamber Orchestras in the US, the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra in Minnesota, has announced that they have engaged Martin Fröst as their Artistic Leader/Partner.
St. Paul Chamber Orchestra’s president Bruce Coppock says:
“In seeking Artistic Partners for the SPCO, we first look for artists who have an inordinate capacity to inspire our audiences and musicians alike. Martin Fröst’s concerts with the SPCO last month were perhaps the most kinetic, awe-inspiring performances SPCO audiences have ever experienced, and the energy Martin released into our musicians was the very definition of leadership through inspiration.”
The collaboration with St. Paul Chamber Orchestra continues up to and including the season 2018/19. This is Martin Fröst’s first international position as Artistic Leader. St. Paul Chamber Orchestra will be one of Martins partners in developing his new Genesis project and recordings, commissions of new repertoire and international touring, including a major tour of the Far East will be key aspects of Martin Fröst’s soloist and conducting residency.
