The violinist Noa Wildschut also makes her debut during the Friday concert with a monographic programme devoted to Sibelius


The Tenerife Symphony Orchestra offers its eighteenth concert of the season with a monographic programme dedicated to Jean Sibelius. The conductor Tabita Berglund and the Dutch violinist Noa Wildschut will make their debut with the island’s orchestra. This new encounter with Tenerife audiences takes place this Friday [10th], at 7:30 p.m., in the Auditorio de Tenerife.

The repertoire starts with the “Concerto for violin and orchestra in D minor, Op. 47”. The score was premièred in 1904. The Finnish composer defines the relationship between nature and human feelings through a composition that is a thrilling melodic balance between the soloist and the orchestra.

During the second part of the concert, the Tenerife Symphony Orchestra will perform the Lemminnkäinen Suite, Op. 22. This composition was premièred in 1896 and is inspired by the Finnish epic Kalevala, a compilation of Finnish folklore and mythology. Sibelius transformed what was initially conceived as a Wagnerian-style opera into a set of tone poems about Lemminkäinen's adventures.

Tabita Berglund is considered one of the young conductors with the most outstanding talent. She has been recently appointed Principal Guest Conductor of the Kristiansand Symphony Orchestra. From 2018 to 2020, she was also the star of the Talent Norway programme and received the Neeme Järvi Prize (2018) from the Gstaad Conducting Academy. 

Berglund started her career as a cellist and studied up to the Master's level under Truls Mørk. She regularly plays with the Oslo Philharmonic and Bergen Philharmonic. In addition, before focusing her career in musical direction in 2015, she also played the cello with the Trondheim Soloists. In 2019 she graduated from the Norwegian Academy of Music's Master of Orchestral Conducting course. She has participated in master classes with Bernard Haitink, Jorma Panula and Jaap van Zweden, and in September 2018 she participated in a workshop given by the BBC Philharmonic. 

Among her recent engagements, we highlight her débuts with the Philharmonic Orchestra of Oslo, the Philharmonic of Bergen, the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra, and the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, the Symphony Orchestra of Trondheim, the Symphony Orchestra of Stavanger, the Arctic Philharmonic and the Norwegian National Opera Orchestra. She has also played internationally outside the Nordic area with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, the City of Granada Orchestra and the Orquestra Simfònica de Barcelona i Nacional de Catalunya, among others. 

Noa Wildschut made her early debut when she was 7 years old at the Amsterdamer Concertgebouw during a Night of the Promising. She has become a benchmark for her generation on the international music scene.  During the season 2019/2020 she was named "Rising Star" by the European Concert Hall Organisation. She is currently named "Junge Wilde" by Dortmund Konzerthaus. 

Her latest collaborations include her compromises with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, Het Resdientie Orkest, Musikalische Akademie Mannheim, Royal Liverpool Symphony Orchestra and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

Wildschut has offered recitals in the main European halls, such as the Philharmonie de París, L’auditori de Barcelona or the Palais des Beaux-Arts of Brussels. Likewise, she has participated in renowned international festivals such as the Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, where she received the Soloist of the Year award in 2018, the Rheingau Musik Festival or the Festival Heidelberger Frühling.
