THIS SEA­SON’S CON­DUC­TORS in­clude Valery Gergiev, Stéphane Denève, Michael San­der­ling, An­drew Manze and Sir Roger Nor­ring­ton as well as a host of crit­i­cally ac­claimed soloists, in­clud­ing four of the most pop­u­lar and highly re­garded Bri­tish pi­anists: John Lill, Barry Dou­glas, Stephen Hough and Peter Dono­hoe. Across the sea­son, the or­ches­tras, con­duc­tors and soloists per­form mu­sic from Mozart, Schubert and Beethoven – in­clud­ing the com­plete cy­cle of the Ger­man com­poser’s pi­ano con­cer­tos – to works of the 20th and 21st cen­turies. Among the sea­son’s many high­lights, the Mari­in­sky Orches­tra re­turns to the series in Oc­to­ber with Valery Gergiev and Hun­gar­ian vi­o­lin­ist Kristóf Baráti for two con­certs of mu­sic by Rim­sky-ko­r­sakov and Stravin­sky, and, in March, Sir Roger Nor­ring­ton con­ducts the SWR Sym­phony Orches­tra Stuttgart as con­duc­tor emer­i­tus with a pro­gramme of all Beethoven works, rounded off by Sym­phony No. 3, the ‘Eroica’. Ris­ing-star Pavel Kolesnikov makes two ap­pear­ances this year, play­ing Beethoven pi­ano con­cer­tos along­side in­ter­na­tion­ally renowned or­ches­tras on each oc­ca­sion: No. 4 with the Czech Na­tional Sym­phony in April, and No. 1 with the Flan­ders Sym­phony Orches­tra the fol­low­ing month. Also in May, the bril­liant Ara­bella Stein­bacher per­forms Tchaikovsky’s Vi­o­lin Con­certo with the Dres­den Phil­har­monic un­der its chief con­duc­tor Michael San­der­ling.
