    The Philharmonia creates thrilling experiences in music for a global audience

    The Philharmonia Orchestra was founded in 1945, and Finnish conductor Santtu-Matias Rouvali took up the baton as Principal Conductor in September 2021.

    In the 2022/23 season, Rouvali conducts music by Beethoven, Mahler, Rachmaninov, John Adams and more.

    The Philharmonia’s Featured Artist this season is cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason. In the first part of the season, he joins the Orchestra in both Haydn Cello Concertos. 

    Anna Clyne is Featured Composer. You can hear her music in several Royal Festival Hall concerts, and in the Philharmonia’s free Music of Today series. 

    Pianists Yuja Wang and Víkingur Ólafsson, violinist Lisa Batiashvili and cellist Alisa Weilerstein are among the other world-class soloists featuring in the season. 

    You can also hear members of the Philharmonia in free early-evening Philharmonia Chamber Players recitals.


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