*We are very sorry to announce that Daniel Blendulf has had to withdraw from conducting this week’s concerts with the SCO due to family illness. We are very grateful to Moritz Gnann who has agreed to step in at very short notice to replace him.
British flautist Adam Walker landed the plum job of principal flautist with the London Symphony Orchestra aged only 21.

Scandinavian conductor Daniel Blendulf directs stirring symphonies by “Father of the Symphony” J Haydn and his admired friend WA Mozart, a composer which Haydn described as “the greatest composer known to me by person and repute”.
