Pianist Steven Osborne is known for insightful and idiomatic interpretations of classic repertoire — a perfect fit for Beethoven’s highly original Fourth Piano Concerto. Plus, the orchestra performs Ravel’s enchanting Mother Goose Suite and gives the U.S. Premiere of Hannah Kendall’s Kanashibari, all under the impressive baton of returning guest conductor Jonathon Heyward.
Jonathon Heyward is forging a career, as one the most exciting conductors of his generation. Currently Assistant Conductor of The Hallé alongside Music Director Sir Mark Elder, the young American has also been selected to be part of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra’s Dudamel Conducting Fellowship programme.
Steven Osborne is one of Britain’s most treasured musicians whose insightful and idiomatic interpretations of diverse repertoire show an immense musical depth. His numerous awards include The Royal Philharmonic Society Instrumentalist of the Year (2013) and two Gramophone Awards.
Led by Music Director Thomas Dausgaard, the Seattle Symphony unleashes the power of music, brings people together and lifts the human spirit. Recognized as one of the “most vital American orchestras” (NPR), the Seattle Symphony is internationally acclaimed for its inventive programming, community-minded initiatives and superb recordings on the Seattle Symphony Media label.
