The conductor Jonathan Bloxham takes up a brand new function this month as London Mozart Gamers’ conductor-in-residence and inventive advisor. His subsequent look on the rostrum with the orchestra is in February 2023 when he might be conducting a programme of Bloch and Mendelssohn at Fairfield Halls (the place the orchestra is resident) with cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason, and the live performance will embrace on-stage dialog between Bloxham and Kanneh-Mason discussing the works being carried out.

Bloxham made his debut with the orchestra in November 2019 at Kings Place with a programme of Mozart, Schubert and a brand new fee. Since then, his tasks with the orchestra have included Beethoven and Mendelssohn symphonies, Shostakovich’s Cello Concerto No.2 with Sheku Kanneh-Mason, Glazunov with saxophonist Jess Gillam and Tchaikovsky with the orchestra’s younger artist in residence, pianist Leia Zhu.

A former cellist (he made his concerto debut on the Berlin Philharmonie in 2012), Bloxham was assistant conductor with the CBSO from 2016-2018. Different engagements this season embrace invites again to Salzburg, Munich, Residentie Orkest and Royal Liverpool Philharmonic. He made his Glyndebourne debut in 2021 with Verdi’s Luisa Miller. Bloxham is the founding father of the Northern Chords Pageant primarily based in Newcastle [see my article about its 2022 season]
