New Nottingham Classics 2023-2024 season announced
We’re pleased to announce our new Nottingham Classics 2023-2024 season, filled with a spectacular mix of music from some of the greatest names in classical music.
The new season will be filled with sensational performances from the likes of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra with its inspirational Music Director, Vasily Petrenko, and superstar pianist Daniil Trifonov, making his Nottingham debut with the Philharmonia Orchestra.
The season will also celebrate the huge contribution of Sir Mark Elder, whose performances with the Hallé have played such a large part in Nottingham Classics’ success over the past 20 years. Sir Mark’s final season as the Hallé’s Music Director includes an awesome trio of concerts here, including Bruckner’s Eighth Symphony, Mahler’s Fifth Symphony and Richard Strauss’s Alpine Symphony with the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain. Sir Mark is also joined by Sir Stephen Hough for the second part of a double bill of Brahms’s epic Piano Concertos.
Another highlight is the return of the National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine on 4 November. Since the Russian invasion last year, the orchestra’s musicians have had to contend with air raids, power outages and the constant stress of performing in a conflict zone. we are honoured to support them as part of a UK-wide tour. All income from the concert will go to the orchestra to support them during this challenging period.
In addition, the new season, which runs from October 2023 to June 2024, will feature appearances from the Dresden Philharmonic, the BBC Philharmonic, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and the Royal Northern Sinfonia.
And there’s more… four of the concerts in the season are followed by late night After Hours performances. These feature absorbing contemporary classical works, eclectic mixes of music and unusual ensembles. They are free to anyone attending the main concert on the same evening. The venue’s superb Sunday Morning Piano Series also returns with a programme of music which showcases amazing artistry in an informal ambience. Performers introduce the pieces from the stage and audiences get to chat with them over coffee and cake (included in the ticket price) after the concert
Jonathan Saville, Director of Programming for TRCH, said of the new season: “We’re looking forward to another terrific series of concerts, filled with gripping performances from some of the best orchestras from around the world. We feel incredibly lucky to be able to host these wonderful artists, and we can’t wait to see our Nottingham Classics audiences return in October, eager to hear more from a fresh, new season!”
Tickets are priced between £11.50 – £39.50 for the orchestral series and £12.50 for the Sunday Morning Piano Series. Discount available for group bookings, under 26s, full time students and schools.
