KODÁLY Dances of Galánta
LISZT Piano Concerto No.1
TCHAIKOVSKY Symphony No.4
Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
In 2014 Mariam Batsashvili became the first female in history to win the International Franz Liszt Piano Competition and it’s the dazzling virtuosity of Liszt’s glittering first concerto that she brings to this concert.
The RPO’s Principal Associate Conductor Alexander Shelley opens the concert with Kodály’s five-movement suite, full of Hungarian folk tunes and robust rhythms. The performance climaxes with Tchaikovsky’s anguished Symphony No. 4, written during a time of turbulence for the composer, its warring emotions veering from fateful fanfares to poignant melancholy, before hurtling through a whirlwind finale.
Arrive early from 6:45pm to meet the musicians in the Corn Exchange Lobby.
