    The Philharmonia creates thrilling experiences in music for a global audience

    Finnish conductor Santtu-Matias Rouvali took up the baton as the Philharmonia Orchestra’s Principal Conductor in September 2021.

    He crowns his first season with Mahler’s monumental Resurrection Symphony in June. 

    Other highlights of the Philharmonia’s spring programme include concerts with violinists Nicola Benedetti and Joshua Bell, Mozart and Bruckner from veteran conductor Herbert Blomstedt and pianist Maria João Pires, and Marin Alsop conducting Shostakovich’s Fifth Symphony. 

    Rouvali kicks off the 2022/23 season with two more Mahler symphonies. In December he’s joined by pianist Yuja Wang for a feast of Rachmaninov. Cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason is the Philharmonia’s Featured Artist, and Anna Clyne is Featured Composer. Look out for pianists Víkingur Ólafsson and Benjamin Grosvenor too.  

    You can also hear members of the Philharmonia in two free series: Music of Today and Philharmonia Chamber Players.


    ‘There were “wow” moments aplenty as the Philharmonia laced up its hiking boots and happily hit every waymark in Strauss’s mountain journey’
