The OSI has made a name for itself as one of the leading European orchestras on the international stage. Since the 1930s it has played a central role in the region’s musical development, taking on its present name in 1991. Ansermet, Stravinsky, Stokowski, Celibidache and Scherchen are among the great musical figures to have directed it, while the many composers with whom it has collaborated include Mascagni, Richard Strauss, Honegger, Milhaud, Martin and Hindemith, and in more recent times Berio, Henze and Penderecki.

Hailed by BBC Radio 3 as “a real poet of the piano”, the American pianist Andrew Tyson, born in 1985, is emerging as a distinctive new musical voice. On the eve of the 2015-2016 season, he captured First Prize and the Mozart Prize at the Concours Géza Anda in Zurich, where his performance of Chopin’s First Piano Concerto, accompanied by the Zurich Tonhalle Orchestra, also brought him the Audience Prize.
