After an absence of six months, the London Philharmonic Orchestra returns to London’s Royal Festival Hall to launch a full Autumn season of concerts and announces Marquee TV as their on-demand partner for the season. The orchestral forces for each concert will comprise approximately 60 players complemented by instrumental and vocal soloists. Edward Gardner, Principal Conductor Designate, opens the season and also taking charge of concerts over October are Principal Guest Conductor Karina Canellakis and guests John Storgårds and Jukka-Pekka Saraste. The programme includes:
Visions of Ecstasy | 7 October: Edward Gardner conducts two emotionally intense masterpieces. Messiaen’s Et exspecto resurrectionem mortuorum and Schoenberg’s Verklärte Nacht.
2011: Storming the heavens | 14 October: John Storgårds conducts Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony, Simone Lamsma plays Nielsen’s Violin Concerto, and Julian Anderson plunges into the luminous, swirling imagination of Vincent van Gogh in his extraordinary Van Gogh Blue.
2012: Rapture and Revelry | 21 October: Karina Canellakis conducts Beethoven’s firecracker of an Eighth Symphony – plus Richard Strauss' outrageous orchestral makeover of Le bourgeois gentilhomme.
2013: Poems old and new | 28 October: In 1913, Sibelius and Ravel conjured rare and ravishing visions for a troubled age: a trio of delicate songs, and a timeless prophecy from Finnish myth. Hear these alongside the UK premiere of Magnus Lindberg’s Cello Concerto No 2 and Franz Schubert’s irrepressible First Symphony.
