Jaap van Zweden has just become a grandfather for the very first time, but there is not an awful lot of time to enjoy his new status: with his Hong Kong Philharmonic an exciting two-week-tour through Europe is scheduled, with performances in many famous concert halls. The tour will be an important test for the orchestra: how will the European critics judge the work Van Zweden has done with the orchestra since he took over? Has he brought them to another level? Especially the concert in the Musikverein in Vienna, arguably the most famous concert hall in the world, with the most critical audience, will be an important moment in the history of the orchestra. Meanwhile, Jaap van Zweden is preparing another piece: after the tour, he will have to conduct the world premiere of a very modern and complex piece of music, in the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam.
