Royal Philharmonic Orchestra - Southbank Centre 2012/13
The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra embarks on another exciting season at Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall, with an array of outstanding artists joining the Orchestra for a series of unmissable concerts. Captivating violinist Nicola Benedetti is sure to dazzle in Korngold’s lush Violin Concerto, directed by the up-and-coming conductor Diego Matheuz, graduate of the famous Venezuelan Sistema. Anticipating Britten’s centenary, the profoundly moving War Re quiem will be sung by The Bach Choir – the choir most associated with the work. Pinchas Zukerman is joined by his daughter, soprano Arianna Zukerman, for Mahler’s Fourth Symphony, and a stellar cast gathers under the direction of Charles Dutoit for what promises to be an unforgettable performance of Berlioz’ masterpiece, The Damnation of Faust.
