Please note that current government guidance in Liverpool means that you can only attend concerts with other members of your household or social bubble.
*We regret to announce that conductor Geoffrey Paterson has had to withdraw from the concert due to travel restrictions. We are grateful to Martyn Brabbins who will replace him.
Please note there has been a change to the programme. The Part Cantus in Memoriam Benjamin Britten and Tippett Little Music for string orchestra will now be performed in place of Athanasia Kontou Antigone: Pure in her crime (world premiere) which will be rescheduled for a date in the future.
Tippett Little Music for string orchestra
Dobrinka Tabakova Fantasy Homage to Schubert
Pärt Cantus in Memoriam Benjamin Britten
Britten Phaedra: dramatic cantata for mezzo-soprano and small orchestra

The heroine of Britten’s Phaedra seizes control of a fearful destiny, perfectly showcased by Liverpool Philharmonic’s current Artist in Residence through until the end of 2020, superstar mezzo-soprano, Jennifer Johnston.
