Conductor James Feddeck returns to the UK this in April and May for appearances with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra (5 and 6 May) and the Hallé (17, 18 and 19 May), as well as his debut with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra (1 April).
The past two seasons have seen James Feddeck distinguish himself as an artist to watch. His return to the UK this spring follows an impressive debut with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra in January, Classical Source praising his ‘ imposing, no-nonsense and intelligently sculptured account’. Feddeck will make his debut with the BBC Philharmonic on Saturday 1 April at Bridgewater Hall. He will be joined by the violinist James Ehnes in a programme of Barber, Rachmaninov and John Harbison’s Remembering Gatsby.
James Feddeck will also be back conducting the Royal Scottish National Orchestra on Friday 5 and Saturday 6 May. He first performed with the orchestra in 2014 as a last-minute replacement, Seen and Heard International describing the concert as a "tremendously exciting debut…which clearly rubbed off on his collaborators". For his May engagement with the RSNO, Feddeck will be joined by Alice Sara Ott on piano.
Feddeck will return to Manchester again later that month to conduct the Hallé. He made his debut with the orchestra back in 2015, again as a short-notice stand in. The Guardian praised his performance, commenting "he worked up a real heat, inhabiting every bar of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony as if it were a second skin”. For his re-invitation this May, Feddeck will be joined by pianist Andrew Tyson in a Slavic-inspired programme featuring Dvořák, Smetana and Chopin.
