Owain Arwel Hughes Conductor
Jayson Gillham Piano

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

Mythical soundworlds and scenes of icy Nordic landscapes await us as in this Royal Philharmonic Orchestra concert, conducted by Owain Arwel Hughes. Welsh composer Grace Williams’ piece, Penillion, is inspired by the tradition of Welsh folk-song, an orchestral evocation of storytelling through music with its captivating melodies and rhythms.

Grieg’s evergreen Piano Concerto, performed by soloist Jayson Gillham, is unmistakable as a Romantic masterpiece from the dramatic flair of the opening bars. Much of Sibelius’ music is deeply intertwined with his sense of belonging to his home country, Finland, and his Symphony No.5 is no exception. With its famous ‘swan-call’ in the trumpets, this symphony distils the wonder and beauty of the natural world.

*The performance of Penillion is made possible with funding from the ABO Trust’s Sirens programme, a ten year initiative to support the performance and promotion  of music by historical women composers.
