The Bath Festival Orchestra announces its 2022-23 season

  • The Bath Festival Orchestra announces a season of live concerts commencing in September 2022 and running until June 2023.
  • The concerts will take place in two of the country’s leading concert venues, at St George’s in Bristol and Cadogan Hall in London’s Chelsea.
  • Guest artists across the season include British trumpeter Matilda Lloyd, Franco-Albanian pianist Marie-Ange Nguci, Scottish tenor Thomas Walker, and British horn player Ben Goldscheider.
  • Peter Manning will conduct all of the Bath Festival Orchestra concerts in his role of Artistic Director.
  • Committed to including lesser-known voices in its programming, the Bath Festival Orchestra will perform brilliant works by 19th- and 20th-century composers including Grażyna Bacewicz (Poland), Louise Farrenc (France), Agnes Tyrell (Czech) and Irish-English composer Elizabeth Maconchy.
  • The season also features classical favourites, including Beethoven’s mighty Piano Concerto No. 5, Mendelssohn’s exquisite Overture “The Hebrides”, Beethoven’s Violin Concerto, Dvorak’s colourful Czech Suite, Britten’s Variations on a Theme by Frank Bridge and Haydn’s remarkable Trumpet Concerto.
  • Elsewhere in the season, the orchestra will go back to its roots with a revival of one of its original programmes encompassing the works of Tippet, Corelli and Britten, previously performed with the orchestra’s founder Yehudi Menuhin at the helm.
  • Speaking of the Bath Festival Orchestra’s 2022 / 2023 season, Concertmaster and Associate Artistic Director Maren Bosma said: “The Bath Festival Orchestra is extremely pleased to be putting on a brand new season with canonic masterpieces, rarely performed treasures, and everything in between. We look forward to sharing the stage with brilliant guest artists in beloved works by Beethoven, Haydn and Britten.”
  • The 2022 / 2023 season builds on the success of the orchestra’s recent concerts across the country’s finest stages, having been hailed as ‘truly impressive’ and a ‘revelation’ by The Observer.
