Guildhall Symphony Orchestra
conducted by Antony Hermus
Priority booking for Guildhall School members opens at 10am on Monday 31 July. General booking opens at 10am on Monday 7 August.
Opening with the atmospheric eight-minute Frontispiece for orchestra by South Korean composer Unsuk Chin, the programme continues with the kaleidoscopic suite from Bartók’s pantomime opera The Miraculous Mandarin, composed 100 years earlier.
Music by Bartók’s Austrian contemporary Alexander von Zemlinsky follows with The Mermaid – an unjustly neglected, sumptuous fantasy for orchestra based on the fairytale by Hans Christian Andersen.
On the conductor's podium is Antony Hermus: Chief Conductor Designate of Belgian National Orchestra, Principal Guest Conductor of Opera North and Principal Guest Conductor of North Netherlands Orchestra.
Presented by Guildhall School of Music & Drama
