NB Change of conductor. LSO St Luke's Tenth Birthday Festival

Sun 24 Mar 2013 10am-5.30pm - Barbican and LSO St Luke's, London




In-depth study day on the life and work of Brahms. Includes access to a morning orchestra rehearsal with Manfred Honeck and Nikolaj Znaider at the Barbican, before moving to LSO St Luke’s for a lecture and performance of Brahms Sextet in G Major with LSO players Tom Norris, Sarah Quinn, Gillianne Haddow, Malcolm Johnston, Alastair Blayden and Daniel Gardner.

Change of conductor

Sir Colin Davis has been recovering from illness since the autumn and as a result has not been able to appear on stage. In January and February he was much improved and has been preparing for, and very much looking forward to, a return to the podium for his concerts with the Orchestra and Nikolaj Znaider this March.

Unfortunately Sir Colin’s health has suffered a setback in the last week and his doctors have advised that he should not conduct for the time being. He has therefore had to withdraw from the concerts on 24 & 26 March (and those on 16 & 18 April – please see separate change note).

Sir Colin is deeply disappointed that he is not able to return at this time but hopes to be back on the Barbican stage in June.

Following this news, we are pleased to announce that Austrian conductor Manfred Honeck, Music Director of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra and a specialist in Viennese repertoire, will now lead the Orchestra on 24 & 26 March.

The programme and soloist for the concerts will remain the same.
