Chamber Music at St George's Hall Concert Room
Summer 2014 at St George's
Join the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra in a new series of summertime concerts in the grand setting of St George’s Hall Concert Room.
The series includes concerts by the orchestra as well as performances by pianist Simon Trpčeski, in solo recital, and also with James Clark, violin and Jonathan Aasgaard, cello. Trpčeski returns to Liverpool Philharmonic as an Artist in Residence following his last performance in 2012 with Vasily Petrenko which prompted the Guardian to refer to them as ‘one of the hottest pianist-conductor partnerships on the scene’.
There can be few operas which better suit the magnificent setting of the Concert Room than Mozart’s third and final opera with a libretto by Lorenzo da Ponte, Così fan tutte. This new production with staging by Bernard Rozet and costumes by one of Europe’s most eminent design schools uses the Concert Room’s opulent setting to full effect.
The summer events also include Cathedral Classics in the magnificent setting of Liverpool Cathedral.
Chamber Music In Liverpool
September 2014 - May 2015
St George’s Hall’s intimate 480 seat concert room has been described as ‘perhaps the finest example of early Victorian design’; Charles Dickens considered it a perfect venue and gave many reading from the stage.
Liverpool Philharmonic’s 2014/15 Chamber Music series at St George’s Hall Concert Room features performances by some of the world’s finest string quartets, vocalists and recital artists, including Ben Johnson, (Winner of the Dame Joan Sutherland Audience Prize at the 2013 Cardiff Singer of the World), legendary violinist, Kyung-wha Chung and pianist, Ji Lui whose debut disc was recorded here in Liverpool.
In addition, following the success of Liverpool Philharmonic’s residency series in 2013/14, we are delighted to welcome internationally acclaimed, locallyborn pianist, Paul Lewis and the great Italian cellist and composer, Giovanni Sollima as Liverpool Philharmonic Artists in Residence for the coming season. We hope that each residency will allow both our musicians and you to build strong and deeper relationships with these artists.
