We are thrilled to be able to announce that Sir Mark Elder has today been appointed a Principal Artist of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, joining our three other Principal Artists Iván Fischer, Vladimir Jurowski and Sir Simon Rattle.
Sir Mark’s association with the Orchestra dates back to 1992 and has included landmark events such as Verdi’s Requiem in 2001 at the Royal Festival Hall; Creation, the final concert of the our Haydn festival at the Southbank Centre in 2009; and most recently conducting us in over twenty different works for the BBC Four series Symphony.
Sir Mark’s next concert with us, and his first as a Principal Artist, will be Berlioz’s Romeo and Juliet at the Royal Festival Hall on 18 February, which is followed by further performances in Basingstoke and Paris and a Night Shift event at Camden’s Roundhouse.
Future collaborations will include concerts and recording projects in association with Opera Rara.
