Mutter plays Penderecki Tickets

Royal Festival Hall


Anne-Sophie Mutter needs no introduction to LPO audiences – we're honoured to have enjoyed a long musical partnership with this incomparable artist. The prospect of hearing her luminous tone and effortless command in Penderecki's impassioned Second Violin Concerto, which was written especially for her, is genuinely exciting, as is the opportunity to hear it conducted by Łukasz Borowicz, who's worked closely with the composer.

Flight of the Firebird Tickets

Royal Festival Hall


When Stravinsky joined forces with Sergei Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes, his creativity was ignited. The Firebird takes an old Russian tale of love, sorcery and rebirth and drenches it in sounds that no one had ever heard before. Over a century on, it’s still one of the most ravishing of all orchestral showpieces.

Organ spectacular Tickets

Royal Festival Hall


Saint-Saëns’s Third is part of a noble Franco-Belgian organ tradition, and guest conductor Dirk Brossé has paired it with the equally thrilling Symphonie Concertante by Joseph Jongen, written in 1926 for the largest organ in the world. It’s a magnificent showcase for soloist James O'Donnell, accompanied by the full orchestra, and a resplendent climax to an evening of pure, ear-tingling sound at its most glorious.

Russian Epics Tickets

Royal Festival Hall


Tchaikovsky’s Fourth Symphony is a sort of secret autobiography, whose story he explained only to his most trusted friends. But his experiences are all there in the music: from the terrifying opening fanfares, through tears, storms and moments of quiet tenderness, all the way to the Symphony’s delirious finish. Mikhail Agrest, of St Petersburg’s Mariinsky Theatre, understands this music instinctively.

The fairytale begins Tickets

Royal Festival Hall


Once upon a time in St Petersburg … Every revolution has its forebears, and Stravinsky learned his craft amidst the glittering sunset of Imperial Russia. His teachers, Rimsky-Korsakov and Glazunov, created musical worlds that glowed with magic and melancholy, and tonight the superb Hungarian virtuoso Kristóf Baráti brings his special brand of passion to one of the undisputed classics of that so-called 'Silver Age': Glazunov's sweet and songful Violin Concerto.

The Rite of Spring Tickets

Royal Festival Hall


This is music at its most uncompromising. In its quieter way, Debussy’s sensuous Printemps is every bit as subversive.
