Musical fireworks abound as Esa-Pekka Salonen and the Philharmonia Orchestra open the Philharmonic Society's 2016-17 classical season with Beethoven's Third Symphony, “Eroica,” and Sibelius' grand Fifth Symphony. At the heart of British musical life, the famed Phiharmonia Orchestra is widely acknowledged as the UK’s foremost musical pioneer.

Named "Musician of the Year" in 2006 by Musical America, Esa-Pekka Salonen is the recipient of many major awards, including the UNESCO Rostrum Prize for his composition Floof in 1992 and the Siena Prize, given by the Accademia Chigiana in 1993; he is the first conductor ever to receive the prize.
