Experience exceptional ensembles from around the world at their London home.
The 2018/19 season concludes with dynamic young ensemble Le Balcon from France, who team up with London Sinfonietta and Royal Academy musicians to stage the cosmic brilliance of Stockhausen's opera Donnerstag aus Licht, not performed in the UK since 1985.
In 2019/20, we open with an award-winning production of Britten's dramatic opera Peter Grimes, conducted by Edward Gardner and featuring Stuart Skelton, Roderick Williams, Susan Bickley and the sounds of the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra.
Further into the season we welcome back the sublime partnership of Mitsuko Uchida and the Mahler Chamber Orchestra for more of their exquisite Mozart Piano Concerto performances; Michael Tilson Thomas brings the inimitable San Francisco Symphony Orchestra for two concerts, featuring Mahler, Stravinsky, Rachmaninov and a new work by John Adams, to celebrate his 75th birthday as well as his 25th (and final) season as Music Director of the Orchestra.
From Japan, the NHK Symphony Orchestra appear with star cellist Sol Gabetta and conductor Paavo Järvi for Rachmaninov's achingly romantic Second Symphony; and the Gürzenich Orchester Köln join François-Xavier Roth and Pierre-Laurent Aimard for a meeting of musical worlds, taking off from Beethoven towards John Cage and Lachenmann.
Finally, and from closer to home, we welcome two ensembles from Birmingham to join Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla in a journey through the unmistakable and visionary soundscapes of Edgard Varèse in Hyperfutures: The Complete Varèse.
