Ben Gernon conducts the BBC Philharmonic in Symphonic Cinema’s productions of Stravinsky The Firebird and Ravel Daphnis and Chloé Suites, with Symphonic Cinema director Lucas van Woerkum working alongside the orchestra to match his film to the performance live on-stage at the Bridgewater Hall as Image Soloist. Ben conducted the UK premiere of Symphonic Cinema’s Firebird back in 2017 with the BBC Symphony and this will be the UK premiere of Daphnis and Chloé, following the world-premiere at Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw in April 2018.

Ben also conducts the BBC Philharmonic in a main season concert featuring Tchaikovsky Symphony No.4. In the first half he is reunited with Paul Lewis (with whom he appeared at the BBC Proms last year) for Mozart Piano Concerto No 25.
