BBC National Orchestra of Wales is proud to be Orchestra-in-Residence at St David's Hall.
Welcome to our Cardiff Season!
As my journey continues in Cardiff, it's a real pleasure to introduce the 2013 /14 season of BBC National Orchestra of Wales - which is simply bursting with the most wonderful music and I urge you all to come and explore these remarkable scores with us.
This season is particularly special because our renowned Chorus celebrates thirty glorious years of music-making. I'm delighted to be working with them twice: both opening the season with Poulenc's Gloria and closing it in June with Brahms's mighty German Requiem. My predecessor Thierry Fischer also returns to St David's Hall to conduct Fauré's haunting Requiem - together, I can't think of three better pieces to showcase the wonderful sound of this ensemble in its anniversary year. On the theme of birthdays, we're pleased to welcome back illustrious pianist John Lill in his 70th birthday year with our esteemed Conductor Laureate Tadaaki Otaka. Other highlights include Jac van Steen with a colourful programme of Bartók and Martinů, and Grant Llewellyn with two celebratory concerts for Christmas and St David's Day.
As a Dane, I'm proud to say there's a distinctly Nordic touch to our visiting Artists across the season including: Eivind Gullberg Jensen, John Lundgren, Gisella Stille, Marita Sølberg and Helsinki Philharmonic's Principal Guest Conductor Olari Elts - so I'll be in excellent company! Perhaps the pearl in my season with the Orchestra is Gustav Mahler's last completed symphony - his ninth - which is such a life-affirming work of art that the Orchestra and I can't wait to share it with you, our wonderfully supportive audience.
