We’re reunited with Sir Simon tomorrow, as we rehearse for our forthcoming tour with him – which also features pianist Pierre Laurent Aimard – the first time we have worked with him. This time the tour is even more extensive, and we’ll be visiting Paris (4 June), Rotterdam (5 June), Brussels (6 June), Cologne (7 June) and Hamburg (9 June) before returning to London for a last concert (and a Night Shift) on Sunday 10 June. Phew!
There are still a few tickets left for the 7pm concert at the Royal Festival Hall in London, so do join us for this unique opportunity to hear the OAE and Sir Simon make a very rare foray into this later repertoire. Details and information.
