It gives me great pleasure to introduce you to our line up of concerts for this season. Across the four (yes…four!) concerts I hope that you will find some of your favourites, with dramatic symphonies by Tchaikovsky, Sibelius and Dvorák, alongside new pieces to discover by three wonderful female composers. I’m particularly excited to be working with our soloists – Olly, Alexandra, and Dan – on concertos that will showcase their skills and push their virtuosity to the limit! It’s aways such a pleasure to collaborate with wonderful musicians; I can guarantee that you are in for a real treat. Finally, and a new venture for ESO, I’m delighted that we are adding a special event for families in which Roald Dahl’s text is brought alive with music and narration in a concert perfect for young, and not so young, ears alike!

Finally, we are delighted to be offering FREE pre-concert talks for each of our concerts, where our soloists will tell us a little about themselves and share their musical inspirations.

I very much look forward to welcoming you to our concerts in the coming season.

Robert Hodge, ESO Music Director
