This season, we have a selection of composers whose work will feature more prominently across our programmes with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, as well as our Chamber music concerts.
We continue to celebrate Beethoven through his 250th Birthday year.
Petrenko’s Mahler Symphonies
We reach the exhilarating conclusion of Vasily Petrenko’s survey of Mahler Symphonies.
One of the most important composers of the 20th century, Richard Strauss is famed for his stunning orchestrations, his use of tonality and his masterful operatic plots. Join us for concerts featuring some of his finest works this season.
Alexander von Zemlinsky
Born in October 1871, we celebrate what would have been Zemlinsky’s 150th birthday with a selection of this influential composer’s works throughout the season. In his work, we feel
the influence of late-Romanticism, twentieth- century modernism, neoclassicism and even jazz – Vasily Petrenko is a fan, and we think you will be too!
The celebrations continue in 2021, with concerts to mark Astor Piazzolla’s 100th birthday. This incredible tango composer introduced us to the ‘nuevo tango’ style, and we’re delighted that our season will even feature Pablo Ziegler who was pianist for, and collaborator with, Piazzolla during the last decade of his life.
50 years after his death, we celebrate the genius of Stravinsky, who revolutionised 20th century music. From the stunning Firebird, to the incredible Rite of Spring, we pay homage to this most diverse and talented of composers.
