Liverpool Philharmonic make Reading debut
Published 06/01/14



THE UK’s oldest suriving professional orchestra makes its debut at the Hexagon in Reading later this month.

The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra has been at the heart of Liverpool’s cultural scene since 1840 and gives around 70 concerts each season, but has never played the hallowed halls of Reading’s Hexagon before.

Their one-night spot will feature the overture to Mozart’s Don Giovanni, Elgar’s Variations On An Original Theme: Enigma, and Brahms’ Symphony No 3 In F Major.

The orchestra will play under the baton of chief conductor, Vasily Petrenko.

Petrenko joined the Liverpool Philharmonic as chief conductor in 2006. Born in Russia in 1976 he is recognised as one of the exceptional musicians of his generation.


He has made frequent appearances at the BBC Proms and toured with the European Union Youth Orchestra. Recent years have seen a series of highly successful North American debuts, including with the Philadelphia Orchestra, Los Angeles Philharmonic, and the San Francisco, Boston, Chicago and St Louis Symphony Orchestras. Highlights of the current season include return visits to the Chicago Symphony, Los Angeles Philharmonic and San Francisco Symphony Orchestras as well as tours in Europe and Asia with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic.

In October 2007 Petrenko was named young artist of the year at the annual Gramophone Awards, and in 2010 he won the male artist of the year at the Classical Brit Awards.

Tickets for the concert at the Hexagon on Friday, January 24 start at 18. If you’ve never been to a Classical Music Alive concert, you can book a Test Drive ticket for a vastly reduced price. Contact the box office on 0118 960 6060 or go to www. readingarts.com
