-SOLD OUT- Scheherazade

Date: 9 Jun
Time: 19:00
Elim Chan conductor
London Symphony Orchestra

Alice Sara Ott piano

Two inspirational women making waves in classical music join forces to present a spectacle of sumptuous Romantic masterpieces and a world premiere.

Elim Chan conducts a programme to keep you on the edge of your seat. Tchaikovsky's First Piano Concerto is filled with drama and intensity from the very first moment - from opening chords soaring up the length of the piano, to virtuosic flourishes and a galloping finale - and no match for Alice Sara Ott's skill. It's complemented by Rimsky-Korsakov's intricately descriptive music, inspired by the Orient and One Thousand and One Nights, an extravagant journey through faraway lands and fairy-tale adventures.

The world premiere of a new work by Liam Mattison - a young composer championed by the LSO - is the perfect match for this showcase, presenting exceptional artists who are the ones to watch.
