Resident at Southbank Centre
Welcome to the 2013/14 season
There is much to celebrate this season. Firstly, we continue our year-long The Rest Is Noise collaboration with Southbank Centre, exploring some of the influential orchestral works composed during the second half of the 20th century. Composers we’ll be highlighting include Messiaen, Lutosławski, Arvo Pärt and John Adams, and we’ll also present extracts from seminal film scores written between 1960 and 2000.
We’re delighted to open our season with a three-concert celebration of the music of Benjamin Britten, whose centenary year is being marked worldwide throughout 2013. Principal Conductor and Artistic Advisor, Vladimir Jurowski, leads this tribute to one of the most important cultural figures of the 20th century, conducting two large-scale masterpieces – Peter Grimes and the War Requiem – alongside some lesser-known orchestral gems.
We shine the spotlight on some of the exciting new artistic talent to have emerged in recent years including two dynamic young conductors, Andres Orozco-Estrada and Andrey Boreyko; pianist Alexandre Tharaud; cellists Jean-Guihen Queyras and Johannes Moser; and guitarist Miloš Karadaglić. To complement their raw talent and energy, we welcome a host of distinguished artists including Mitsuko Uchida, Ian Bostridge, Leif Ove Andsnes, Evelyn Glennie and Emanuel Ax.
We are also thrilled to bring you two world premieres – James MacMillan’s Viola Concerto and the late Górecki’s eagerly awaited Fourth Symphony. We hope you’ll join us for another rich and colourful season.
