(Paddy Considine was the other guest, not Jeremy Irons who appeared at another concert)
and here’s a swearier tweet expressing a similar sentiment 🙂
The City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra premiered the Sherlock Suite, on 8 July 2013 at the Bridgewater Hall in Manchester, as one of Mark Kermode’s four 50th birthday celebration concerts. They’ll be playing it again at two concerts in June 2015, in Birmingham and Nottingham, as part of David Arnold’s series of ‘Live in concert’ events (at which he’ll be performing).
And they’re playing it on Friday 6 March at Birmingham Symphony Hall too, part of Friday Night Classics: 21st Century Blockbusters.
Manchester’s Bridgewater Hall will also be hosting a performance of the Sherlock Suite but it will be the Manchester Camerata orchestra doing the honours, on 14 April. They’ll also be performing the piece at the Liverpool Philharmonic a week later on 21 April.
And for those in London, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra will be on concert duties for ‘David Arnold: Live in Concert’ at the Barbican on 18 June.
There’ll be plenty of James Bond music at David’s concerts too and Londoners might also want to take advantage of the fact that the Prince Charles Cinema in Leicester Square is holding a Bond retrospective and showing all 007 films every Sunday. In a nice bit of programming confluence the Thursday 18 June concert at the Barbican is sandwiched between Casino Royale on Sunday 14 June and Quantum of Solace on Sunday 21 June.
