Experience the best the globe has to offer here at the London home of exceptional ensembles from around the world.
This season we host the vibrant Spira mirabilis from Italy, who prove that a conductor is not always necessary for brilliant renditions of Beethoven. Also, Sir Simon Rattle brings the peerless Berliner Philharmoniker for two final performances under his leadership, mixing short new works with classics by Bruckner and Brahms.
2018/19 opens with the first UK appearances from Andris Nelsons and Leipzig's illustrious Gewandhausorchester. This is the orchestra's first time at Royal Festival Hall in 13 years, and with a double-bill of Mahler's biggest symphonies this is sure to be an unmissable set of concerts.
Further into the season, Mitsuko Uchida performs intimate renditions of two Mozart Piano Concertos with the dynamic Mahler Chamber Orchestra, and the St Petersburg Philharmonic dive into their history for a programme of Russian works.
A new year calls for new music, and Frankfurt's cutting edge Ensemble Modern play twice as part of State of Sound: in a portrait concert of British composer Rebecca Saunders and in a selection of new works from a global roster of exciting young artists.
Finally, France's Le Balcon team up with London Sinfonietta and RAM musicians to stage the cosmic brilliance of Stockhausen's Donnerstag aus Licht, the work's first performance in the UK since 1985.
