Simone Rubino sets off virtuosic fireworks of unheard-of timbres and rhythmical precision in his concerts – at the same time he dazzles with his sensitive and nuanced style.
Right at the beginning of the 2018/2019 season he will be premiering a new work by American composer Avner Dorman together with the NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchester in the same-titled hall. Another highlight of the season will be his residency at the Münchner Rundfunkorchester where he appears with three different programmes.
Furthermore Simone Rubino makes his debuts with the SWR Symphonieorchester under the baton of Francesco Angelico as well as with the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra and Joshua Weilerstein.
In addition, he returns to the Deutsche Symphonieorchester Berlin to play MacMillan‘s „Veni, veni Emmanuel“ together with Sanntu-Matias Rouvali. Simone Rubino also continues his relationship with the Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale della RAI and Tan Dun.
His first solo album “Immortal Bach” (Genuin) that juxtaposes an arrangement of Bach’s third Cello Suite with works by Xenakis, Boccadoro, Bocca and Cage, has been described by the Süddeutsche Zeitung as „the virtuosic way, how Simone Rubino combines old and new, dynamically and as it were caressing, it is meditative and can be addictive.”
