Plans are already being made for a very special 30th Anniversary Season in 2019/2020, so this year’s programme may be slightly shorter than usual but it’s still packed with a wealth of great music, performed by world-class orchestras, and featuring a cluster of star performers. There will also be the regular programme of fascinating pre- and post-show events to look forward to, giving you the opportunity to learn more about the works being played, and about the musicians performing them.
