We regret to announce that the Dallas Symphony Orchestra has cancelled its UK 2016 tour due to circumstances beyond our control and this performance is cancelled.

Customers will be given a full refund automatically. On behalf of the orchestra, we apologise for any inconvenience and disappointment caused.



Dallas Symphony performances conducted by Jaap van Zweden are regularly hailed by the Dallas Morning News as ‘exhilarating’, ‘revelatory’, ‘intensely dramatic’ and ‘as electrifying as you’ll hear anywhere’. The Dallas Symphony Orchestra has released more than 30 CD recordings, toured Europe five times and performed in Asia, Mexico, Washington D.C. and in New York’s Carnegie Hall. Music Director Jaap van Zweden was named Musical America Conductor of the Year 2012 in recognition of his critically acclaimed work as Music Director of the Dallas Symphony.

The orchestra is joined by piano virtuoso Imogen Cooper to give a performance of Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 24. Imogen Cooper has established a reputation as one of the finest interpreters of the Classical repertoire earning consistently high praise from critics. ‘She is an outstanding artist, one of the finest pianists now playing. Go, listen, and wonder how many better pianists there are alive in this country, or anywhere.’ (The Telegraph)

To end the evening the orchestra performs the Suite from Strauss’ opera Der Rosenkavalier, translated as ‘The Cavalier of the Rose’. The Suite opens just as the opera does, with bellowing horns and glowing strings, followed by shimmering chords played by flutes, solo violins, harps, and celesta.
