Touring the summer festivals 2016

On Wednesday 24 August we embark upon a tour of Europe's summer music festivals with our new Principal Guest Conductor Gianandrea Noseda.

Over three weeks we will be visiting six different countries – Slovenia, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Czech Republic and Spain – to play 14 concerts at some of Europe's most picturesque summer festivals.

Starting at the Ljubljana Festival on 24 August our programmes feature Wagner, Prokofiev, Rachmaninov, Haydn, Beethoven, Shostakovich, Verdi, Puccini, Debussy and Dvorák, before we head back to London to open the 2016/17 London season at the Barbican Centre on Sunday 18 September with Noseda and the London Symphony Chorus performing Verdi Requiem.
