New Year's Eve celebrations
In February 2015 Alexandre was announced as Principal Guest Conductor of Düsseldorf Symphoniker from 15/16 season for an initial term of three years. He will work alongside celebrated Hungarian conductor Adam Fischer who was appointed Chief Conductor.
"How refreshing to see Bloch having such fun; every conductorial twist, lurch and twink reflected in orchestral playing which oozed style and character." theartsdesk.com, Graham Rickson, 21 February 14
Bloch had the essence of this music at his fingertips, as he most assuredly also had of the ‘Play of the Waves’ middle movement from Debussy’s La mer, in which, as a Frenchman, he was on home ground, so to speak, but his direction and – indeed – interpretation of his compatriot’s masterpiece was head and shoulders above those of his competitors.
