The orchestra will spotlight the 100th anniversary of the composer Pierre Boulez’s birth, and will give more than 70 performances a year as the resident orchestra of the Barbican Center.

Outside of concerts, Pappano will conduct Puccini’s “La Rondine” in concert format and Richard Strauss’ “Salome” with Asmik Grigorian.

Among the guest conductors, Honorary Conductor Simon Rattle will appear in January and May, and will hold two birthday concerts as he turns 70. Meanwhile, laureate conductor Michael Tilson Thomas will turn 80 in December, but will precede his appearance on the podium in October to conduct Mahler’s Symphony No. 2.

As for Boulez, principal guest conductor François-Xavier Roth will lead a concert celebrating the composer’s music and legacy. Other guest conductors include Daniele Rustioni, Klaus Mäkelä, Barbara Hannigan, Gianandrea Noseda, Daniel Harding, Gustavo Dudamel, and Susanna Malkki.
