WELCOME TO THE PHILHARMONIA ORCHESTRA’S
2017/18 SEASON AT DE MONTFORT HALL.
2017/18
How to follow our 20th anniversary season as the Resident Orchestra of De
Montfort Hall? With the return to Leicester of our Principal Conductor and
Artistic Advisor, Esa-Pekka Salonen, conducting Mahler (10 April 2018); the
first performance in Leicester of our new music strand,
Music of Today
; and
performances from some of our finest visiting artists, including violinist
Hilary Hahn and pianist Simon Trpčeski.
One of the Philharmonia’s new Principal Guest Conductors, Jakub Hruša,
opens the Season with a work that is close to his heart as a Czech artist, the
complete version of Smetana’s
Má Vlast
(7 October 2017). What follows is a
succession of great works for orchestra, including the Tchaikovsky Violin
Concerto and Piano Concerto No. 1, Bartók’s
Concerto for Orchestra
, and
symphonic poems by Liszt and Wagner.
Our Education programme in Leicester goes from strength to strength.
New for this season, we are working with the Leicester-Shire Schools Music
Service to celebrate its 70th anniversary, with a special concert on Saturday 3
February 2018. See page 10 for full details.
Thank you to all our partners in Leicester, whose support makes the
Season possible: Leicester City Council, our Principal Partner, De Montfort
University, and our partners at the University of Leicester.
We look forward to welcoming you.
