Tickets "at the door" - until sold out
  1. Concert Românesc - György Ligeti
  2. Concerto for Piano and Orchestra No 3 in C Op 26 - Sergey Prokofiev
  3. Symphony No 1 in C minor Op 68 - Johannes Brahms

Ligeti’s Concert Românesc adapts the sounds of Romanian folk music from his childhood to the symphonic and opens with an evocation of the iconic alphorn, which could be heard among the Carpathian mountains.

Pianist Isata Kanneh-Mason continues her RPO artistic residency with Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No 3 – a piece filled with ingenious melodic invention and weaving of its many varied themes, inspired by the composer’s travels.

Written under the long shadow of Beethoven, Brahms’ First Symphony showed that he was a master of the form – with the drama and dynamism conjured out of all sections of the orchestra, leading to a triumphant finale that stamps a resounding seal of the composer’s symphonic prowess.

“[Isata] played beautifully… calmly commanding throughout, she was also unfailingly subtle.” – The New York Times.
