Søndergård and Benedetti

‘Nicola Benedetti – now, she really can play!’ says the American jazz legend Wynton Marsalis. Not that we need telling! There’s a good reason why Benedetti is the nation’s favourite classical violinist, and when she plays the concerto that Marsalis wrote specially for her in 2015, something sensational happens: one…

Chan Conducts Romeo and Juliet

‘But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks?’ Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet redefined romantic music, while Prokofiev brought Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers to the USSR – and gave us some of the 20th century’s loveliest melodies. Rachmaninov’s Second, meanwhile, has got to be the world’s dreamiest piano concerto, and with Elim…

Norrington Conducts Schumann

Schumann was such a romantic that he couldn’t contain himself. When he saw the magnificent scenery of the Rhineland, his emotions burst out into the grandest and most exuberant of all his symphonies.

Dvorák's New World Symphony

Carmina Burana

Sex, drink and roasted swans – choral music isn’t meant to be this much fun! But the medieval monks who wrote the words to Carmina Burana didn’t seem to have been that bothered. There’s nothing pious about Orff’s outrageous cantata; just great tunes, unstoppable rhythms and some thoroughly bad behaviour.…

Søndergård Conducts Mahler Six

Art imitates life: it isn’t meant to happen the other way around. Mahler’s mighty Sixth Symphony imagines a hero destroyed by three devastating blows of fate. But after he’d completed this immense, tragic masterpiece, that’s exactly what happened to Mahler himself. It’s a musical experience that leaves no listener unmoved,…

Søndergård Conducts Belshazzar's Feast

In 1931 William Walton blew British choral music sky-high. Big, brassy and shamelessly savage, Belshazzar’s Feast shocked audiences back then, and it still knocks you backwards today. It’s an electrifying way to end Thomas Søndergård’s first Season as Music Director, but he’s got a couple more surprises up his sleeve:…
