Bernard Haitink Conducts the London Symphony Orchestra in Works by Purcell, Mozart, Schubert and Bruckner

Bernard Haitink conducts the London Symphony Orchestra in two concerts with Portugese pianist Maria João Pires on 10 and 14 June.
On 10 June the programme includes Schubert’s Ninth and final symphony, widely considered to be Schubert’s finest piece for orchestra. On 14 June Haitink conducts the LSO in Bruckner’s Seventh Symphony, one of the composer’s most popular works.
Both concerts open with music by Purcell; the Chacony in G minor edited for string orchestra by Benjamin Britten (10 June) and the Funeral March for Queen Mary (14 June). Maria João Pires is the soloist in Mozart’s Piano Concerto No 20 in D minor (10 June) and No 23 in A major (14 June).
The LSO with Bernard Haitink and Maria João Pires perform the same programmes at the Salle Pleyel in Paris on 17 and 18 June, part of the LSO’s annual residency at the Salle Pleyel.
On Sunday 10 June there is an LSO Discovery Day exploring the music of Schubert ahead of the evening performance of his Ninth Symphony.

Sunday 10 June, 10am-5.30pm, Barbican Hall and LSO St Luke’s
Find out more about the life and music of Schubert, with access to LSO rehearsals and chamber music sessions with LSO players.
