This weekend, Edward Gardner returns to the Edinburgh International Festival to conduct Haydn’s Creation, opening the festival’s Usher Hall series with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and soloists Robert Murray, Neal Davies and Sarah Tynan.
This follows his highly acclaimed performance of Peter Grimes at last year’s festival, described as “the best I’ve ever seen” by The Spectator, and awarded five-star reviews from The Times, The Telegraph, The Observer, The Scotsman and The Herald.

Later this month, Edward will perform at the BBC Proms twice. First, conducting a programme of Boulanger, Elgar and Vaughan-Williams with the BBC Symphony Orchestra and soloists Sophie Bevan, Neal Davies and Jean‐Guihen Queyras. Then, as part of a European festivals tour that sees performances in Amsterdam, London, Hamburg and Warsaw, he brings his Bergen orchestra to the Royal Albert Hall, where together with Alina Ibragimova, they’ll give the world premiere of Rolf Wallin’s Violin Concerto, before performing Sibelius’ Symphony No. 2.
