Royal Northern Sinfonia
Mozart’s music is, of course, great. But that also happens to be the little-known nickname of his Symphony No.40, distinguishing it from another symphony by him in the same key. This symphony is one of his most profound and spiritual. While it is often dark and emotionally intense, it is lightened by sharp contrasts in mood and style, and moments of playfulness. Schumann’s Piano Concerto is one of the most-loved pieces of all classical music. It’s not showy, but it is instead a lyrical, involving dialogue between piano and orchestra, expressing yearning and happiness between two people. Prior to this Beethoven’s powerful and muscular Coriolan Overture starts the evening.

Royal Northern Sinfonia, orchestra of Sage Gateshead, is the UK’s only full-time chamber orchestra. Founded in 1958, RNS has built a worldwide reputation for the North East through the quality of its music-making and the immediacy of the connections the musicians make with audiences.
The orchestra regularly flies the flag for the region at major festivals, including the BBC Proms. They appear frequently at venues and festivals in Europe, including La folle journée in Nantes. In recent seasons they have toured to Vienna, Budapest, Istanbul and Tokyo.
