As a single horn sounds a fanfare that calls together the musicians of the orchestra, we invite you to join us for the opening of the 2022/23 Season in the company of Music Director Daniele Rustioni and phenomenal pianist, Stephen Hough.
 
Lose yourself in the tempestuous drama of Brahms’s Second Piano Concerto, with all of Stephen Hough’s dazzling virtuosity and warmth, and meet Richard Strauss’s (autobiographical?) ‘hero’ in a musical narration of A Hero’s Life (Ein Heldenleben).
 
Through depictions of the protagonist’s moods, enemies and his beloved companion, Strauss paints a kaleidoscopic picture of the trials, tribulations and triumphs of life. This fascinating depiction of humanity is a welcome start to our new Season!
