She will perform the solo part of Vladimir Peskin's Concerto No. 1 in C minor for trumpet and orchestra by Vladimir Peskin. The concert celebrates 200 years from Cesar Franck's birth, so the concert poster also includes two of the French Composer's with german and belgian roots opera: The symphonic poem Le Chasseur maudit (The Accursed Huntsman) and the Symphony in D minor. The Orchestra will be conducted by Patrick Hahn. Like Selina Ott, the conductor is a young Austrian, who is 27 years old and has a wealth of musical experience.

Selina Ott has received the Opus Klassik prize in 2021 (concert recording of the year) for her debut album '"Trumpet Concertos", made in collaboration with Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra and conductor Roberto Paternostro. In 2018, Selina Ott has become the first woman in 70 years to win the first prize of the international music contest ARD for trumpet players, at only 20 years old. She was immediately invited to perform with big orchestras, such as the WDR Symphony Orchestra Köln, the Czech Philharmonic conducted by Semyon Bychkov and Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin. In addition, she performed along the Marrinsky Theatre Orchestra under the baton of Valery Gergiev, at Grafenegg with the Tonkluster Orchestra under the baton of Yutaka Sado, with the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra, Orchestre Philharmonique Royal de Liège, Hamburger Symphoniker, SzczecinPhilharmonicandCollegium Musicum Basel.

From 2011 to 2016 Selina Ott has studied at the Universityof Music and Performing Arts Vienna together with Martin Mühlfellner, and between 2015 and 2016 she studied at the Karlsruhe's University of Musicwith Reinhold Friedrich.

In October of 2020, her debut album "Trumpet Concertos" was released in collaboration with Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra and Roberto Paternostro, with works composed by Arutiunian, Peskin and Desenclos, under Orfeo's label. In June of 2021, her second album, made in collaboration with pianist En-Chia was also released by the record label Orfeo.

In March of 2022, another album in collaboration with Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra, pianist Maria Rãduțu and Dirk Kaftan, with works composed by Dmitri Shostakovich, Weinberg and Jolivet was also launched under Orfeo's label. For that matter, in our break from the live broadcasting this Friday, I will offer you some excerpts from this record.

La jeune represents the motto of this concert, a new series in which the German Radio Philharmonic Orchestra of Saarbruckenintroduces young talents. Among those there is conductor Patrick Hahn, born in 1995 in Graz, music director of Wuppertal's Symphonic Orchestra, the youngest conductor occupying this position in Germany.

So, a breath of fresh air on the European scene- Friday, the 11th of November, 2022, from 22:00.
