Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra 2016-
From a complete Beethoven Symphony cycle to a celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the release of The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, it is a great showcase for the versatility and artistry of the Orchestra and its Chief Conductor Vasily Petrenko, now in his tenth year in the post.
Connecting man and machine
Ravel loved mechanical toys and collected music boxes. Conlon Nancarrow wrote pieces for player piano. Even Beethoven used cutting edge innovations for his time, in the form of the pianoforte and metronome. Machinery has long fascinated composers, and never more so than today.
So there's something very apt about Dreamachine, a piece for solo percussion and orchestra by American composer Michael Daugherty, which the RPO and Scottish percussionist Dame Evelyn Glennie will perform in Reading, Cambridge and London this June. Commissioned by the WDR Rundfunkorchester Köln, this four-

Milian Music presents a brand new compilation of the greatest film music and orchestrations from iconic Italian composer, orchestrator and conductor Ennio Morricone on June 17th. Throughout the course of his impressive career that has spanned seven decades, he has composed over 500 scores for cinema and television, won innumerable awards including an honorary Oscar in 2003, and made film music become a true art as important as classical music and cinema.
Whether for Sergio Leone’s ‘Spaghetti Westerns’ now synonymous with his name, his timeless themes (‘Le clan des siciliens’, ‘The Mission’, ‘Lolita’) or the latest film by Tarantino The Hateful Eight, which this year won a Golden Globe, Bafta and Oscar for Best Original Score, Ennio Morricone has lasted through the years as the film composer of many cult soundtracks, legendary melodies and brilliant orchestrations.
To celebrate Morricone’s exceptional contribution to the music industry, 23 of his greatest scores have been gathered on one CD, including ‘Once Upon A Time In The West’. Julibee is a fitting tribute to undoubtedly the greatest film composer of all time.

Franck’s rarely performed and only symphony which culminates in blazing glory concludes the evening’s music.‘Douglas superbly draws out the contrasts within each piece, bringing out their individual character… his tone is a deep velvet cushion, the legatos full of affection and the rhythms galvanised with great energy.’ (BBC Music Magazine)
