Spring 2024 at Southbank Centre

A season that explores the endings and beginnings of things, the preludes and finales of musical stories. Featuring music by Mozart, JS Bach, Sibelius, Mendelssohn and others.
"What we call the beginning is often the end
And to make an end is to make a beginning.
The end is where we start from."
TS Eliot - Four Quartets

This Spring we’re joined by leading names from the world of historical performance. Louise Alder and Riccardo Minasi in an all-Mozart programme, award-winning conductor Peter Whelan directs Bach’s Easter Oratorio, Maxim Emelyanychev leads an adventure into the late Romantic world of Sibelius and Rachmaninov, and we reunite with Sir András Schiff for a mini-festival of Mendelssohn’s complete symphonies and best-loved concertos.
