Overview

Royal Northern Sinfonia returns to The Maltings later this year to continue their hugely popular classical season with Martinu, Barber, Pavel Hass, Dvorak.

The UK's only full-time chamber orchestra, founded in 1958, is always a hit so be sure to book your tickets fast - and don't forget, two under 16's come free with a paying adult! PROGRAMME MARTINU - Three Madrigals for Violin and Viola H313 BARBER - String Quartet in B minor; 2nd Movement: Molto Adagio PAVAL HASS - Wind Quintet, Op 10 INTERVAL BARBER - Summer Music for Wind Quintet, Op 31 DVORAK - String Quartet No 12 in F Major “American” 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 the Edinburgh Festival and the BBC Proms, last year performing Handel’s Water Music at the Stage@The Dock in Hull – the first Prom performed outside of London since 1930.

The orchestra appears frequently at venues and festivals in Europe, and last season toured as far afield as Istanbul and Tokyo. This summer the orchestra took part in the Great Exhibition of the North, including performances of The Marriage of Figaro at Sage Gateshead, the ‘RNS Sampler’ day of free concerts aimed at new audiences, and a regional tour of Nordic music. In recent seasons RNS has worked with conductors and soloists Christian Tetzlaff, Olli Mustonen, Reinhard Goebel, Karina Canellakis and Nicholas McGegan; a host of world class singers including Sally Matthews, Karen Cargill and Elizabeth Watts, and has also collaborated with leading popular voices such as Sting, Ben Folds, John Grant and Mercury Rev. RNS has commissioned new music, recently by Benedict Mason, David Lang, John Casken and Kathryn Tickell, and in the 2015/16 season launched a new Young Composers Competition.

To celebrate its 60th Anniversary Season the orchestra has commissioned encore pieces from Errollyn Wallen, Tansy Davies and William Marsey. RNS has always been actively involved in local communities and in education. This season the orchestra will perform across the region in Kendal, Middlesbrough, Carlisle, Berwick, Barnard Castle and Sunderland, and will once again take their Baroque Christmas by Candlelight tour to regional churches. Musicians support young people learning musical instruments through Sage Gateshead’s Centre for Advanced Training and through In Harmony, a long-term programme in Hawthorn Primary School in which every child in the school learns a musical instrument and plays in an orchestra. This project has been extended to include Bridgewater Primary School in Scotswood, as well as its attached nursery and nearby Rye Hill Community Nursery.
