On 28.4.2013 the Aargau Symphony Orchestra (ASO) celebrated its 50th anniversary with a highly acclaimed concert of 20th Century music by composers from the Canton of Aargau, conducted by Principal Conductor Douglas Bostock. Five of the six compositions performed at the concert will appear on a CD entitled “Swiss Aspects” on the Corviello Classics label - http://www.covielloclassics.de. The CD will be issued in October.
Celebrating its 50th anniversary and reflecting the orchestra’s significant recent development as well as its future vision, the Aargau Symphony Orchestra (ASO) changed its name to argovia philharmonic – www.argoviaphil.ch - with effect from the new season 2013/2014. Follow Maestro Bostock and his orchestra on Facebook.
Toward the end of last season Douglas Bostock returned as guest conductor both to the Czech Chamber Philharmonic and the Munich Symphony Orchestra, and as director of the international conducting master class in Interlaken, Switzerland. A busy schedule of concerts in Japan and the Tonhalle Zürich brought the season to a close.
