It is an absolute honour and privilege for me to welcome everyone to this new season with Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra & Chorale, my first as the new Music Director.  I am so thrilled and excited beyond belief to become part of this awesome organization that has done an immeasurable amount for the promotion of historically informed performance in the United States. 

I am determined to carry on that work in presenting programmes that satisfy and challenge both performers and audiences alike.  There is so much extraordinary music still to discover, and so much that we are still learning about performance practice in all areas of repertoire, not just the Baroque.  

I am an unashamed musical omnivore, and I hope you will come on our fabulous journey together to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new works and re-assess old ones, to boldly take Philharmonia into the 21st century.  I couldn’t be happier.

Yours,
