OVERVIEW

The Academy’s first USA tour of 2019 – the orchestra’s 60th anniversary year – features an exciting and poignant programme.

Jeremy Denk is one of America’s foremost pianists, winner of a MacArthur ‘Genius’ Fellowship and the Avery Fisher Prize. For this tour of his homeland we’ll present Benjamin Britten’s Young Apollo piano concerto in its 80th anniversary year, and offer the chance to hear Jeremy performing two wonderful concertos by Mozart.

Under the direction of Tomo Keller the Academy will also showcase diverse music for chamber orchestra, including Albinoni’s Concerto Op. 5, No. 5 – the first piece the orchestra performed at St Martin-in-the-Fields Church 60 years ago, in November 1959.
