On Wednesday 15 April 2015, Alan Gilbert delivered the prestigious Royal Philharmonic Society Annual Lecture at Milton Court Concert Hall in London to an audience of music industry leaders. His lecture, entitled “Orchestras in the 21st Century; a new paradigm” challenges orchestras, their conductors, artistic directors, administrators, and musicians, to take a step back and to re-evaluate what it is that an orchestra can and should be in the modern era.
