We are delighted to announce our Winter/Spring 2022 collection of fantastic symphonic concerts.

Kirill brings a mix of concerts featuring works by composers from across the former Soviet Union and closes our season with a special concert of British music to commemorate the Platinum Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth. Mark Wigglesworth returns as newly appointed Principal Guest Conductor with Schubert’s Ninth Symphony, joined by Dame Imogen Cooper to perform Mozart’s Piano Concerto No.22. We also welcome young conductors Kerem Hasan, Case Scaglione and Teresa Riveiro Böhm, and Felix Klieser continues his role as BSO Artist-in-Residence in a special recital of chamber works by Mozart and Brahms, together with BSO Principal players.
