Classical Season

We are thrilled to announce our brand-new 2018/19 classical season of close to 200 concerts.

Highlights include: two concerts from Andris Nelsons and the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig, the first performances of Stockhausen’s Donnerstag aus Licht in the UK since 1985; Mitsuko Uchida performing two Mozart piano concertos with the Mahler Chamber Orchestra; recitals from Leonidas Kavakos and Yuja Wang, Maurizio Pollini, and Pierre-Laurent Aimard; a festival of new music by international composers featuring London Sinfonietta, Ensemble Modern, Aurora Orchestra and Claire Chase; as well as the European premiere of a new work from Philip Glass, in tribute to the chameleon genius of pop mastermind David Bowie.

All this, plus free events, pre-concert talks, live-screenings, workshops and study days from the most exciting artists, conductors, orchestras and ensembles the world over.
