It seems like only yesterday we launched our first season together, so I'm thrilled to announce our 2015-16 programme. It's a demonstration of how far our relationship has grown and represents everything we do best together: from large symphonic repertoire to refined classical works - our audiences are sure to be enthralled by the concerts to come.

I'm particularly excited to welcome our new Composer-in-Association, Huw Watkins to the team. From the first time we played Huw's Violin Concerto a few years ago I knew this was a composer that we should work with more closely, and greatly look forward to exploring his scores with the orchestra.

Once again we will be collaborating with a wealth of incredible soloists; top international singers for Rachmaninov's The Bells in October, and Mozart's Requiem in January. We also welcome Nicola Benedetti to join us in our season finale, alongside one of my personal favourites in the second half: Mahler's first symphony. There is something about the way that Mahler writes that affects the youngest to the oldest listener - it's full of naiveté, deep sorrow and love; his music will always be on my favourites-list!

I hope that you will continue joining us at St David's Hall as a place where we experience direct contact with each other: witnessing the musicians dedication, with bows flying and percussion thundering, soloists breathing... live music-making enhances our experience, making it all the more tangible and real. So come join us and experience real life, through real music.
