Fumiaki Miura Violin
An exploration of enchanting soundscapes.
Explore a host of enchanting soundscapes with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra's Principal Associate Conductor, Alexander Shelley. Opening tonight's concert is the 2015 work, This Midnight Hour, by London-born Anna Clyne - the GRAMMY-nominated composer of acoustic and electro-acoustic music.
The RPO warmly welcomes back its 2021/22 Artist-in-Residence, Fumiaki Miura, for a performance of Prokofiev's Second Violin Concerto, before we're whisked off to fairytale lands with Ravel's magical Mother Goose Suite. Closing the performance is Stravinsky's spellbinding The Firebird - telling tales of magical feathers, princesses, princes and palaces.
For more than seven decades the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO) has been at the forefront of music-making in the UK. The Orchestra's regular performances at its London home Cadogan Hall are complemented by a distinguished series at Southbank Centre's Royal Festival Hall, a hugely popular series at the Royal Albert Hall and frequent visits to its seven principal residencies across the UK. With a wider reach than any other UK large ensemble, the RPO has truly become Britain's national orchestra.www.rpo.co.uk
Cadogan Estates purchased the Hall in 2000 to safeguard its future. Through their connection with Opera Holland Park, Cadogan discovered that the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra was looking for a permanent base in London. The Orchestra is proud to have assisted with Cadogan's aim to bring the former church back into useful life in a manner befitting its character and civic presence.
Despite the scale of the auditorium, the combined effects of the stage, the steeply raked stalls and the low gallery create a surprisingly intimate venue where audiences can experience a very real feeling of being part of the performance.
The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra is proud to be Cadogan Hall's Resident Orchestra.
