The Donatella Flick LSO Conducting Competition was launched in 1996 and has become one of the most sought-after competitions of its kind. This concert sees the culmination of the preliminary rounds held at the Guildhall School and Milton Court, in which the winner will be named as LSO Assistant Conductor for the forthcoming year. The competition will take place in front of an esteemed panel including Pierre Boulez, Daniel Harding, Mauro Bucarelli, Xian Zhang, Lennox Mackenzie and Patrick Harrild.

The finalists will tackle an ambitious programme starting with a dramatic overture by Beethoven. It continues with a neo-classical symphony by Stravinsky written shortly after his move to the USA in the 1940s, full of intricate rhythms that will keep competitors on their toes. Rimsky-Korsakov’s colourful symphonic fantasy inspired by the 1001 Nights rounds off an evening of excitement and challenge.
