A regular, close collaborator of leading composers of the day, she is a strong advocate of new music – a characteristic which is reflected in her diverse programs and her enthusiasm for premiering new works. Ms. Josefowicz has recently premiered concertos written for her by Esa-Pekka Salonen of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Steve Mackey of the St. Louis Symphony, and Colin Matthews of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. She has also played first performances of Thomas Adès’ violin concerto Concentric Paths with the Philadelphia and Cleveland Orchestras, the San Francisco, Toronto and Seattle symphonies, and at the Aspen Music Festival. In recognition of her passionate advocacy and genuine commitment to the music of today, Ms. Josefowicz was awarded a MacArthur Foundation Fellowship.

Susanna Mälkki’s versatility and broad repertoire have taken her to symphony orchestras, chamber orchestras, contemporary music ensembles, and opera houses around the world. Currently the Music Director of the Ensemble intercontemporain, Susanna Mälkki in recent seasons has conducted some of the world’s leading orchestras including the Berliner Philharmoniker, Philharmonia Orchestra, Münchner Philharmoniker, Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra and the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin. In April 2011 she made her debut at La Scala, Milan, becoming the first woman to conduct an opera at La Scala in the house’s prestigious history.
