Looking Ahead January at the Royal Festival Hall

The Mahler anniversary celebrations continue with performances of his Fifth and Sixth symphonies and Vladimir Jurowski conducts Das klagende Lied with soloists including Christianne Stotijn and Christopher Purves. Our Principal Guest Conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin makes his season début with two concerts - the second of which includes Fauré's well-loved Requiem with soloists Sally Matthews and Gerald Finley.
