This concert is part of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra’s tour of the United States in 2022.
As the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra celebrates its 75th anniversary, its mission remains to enrich lives through orchestral experiences that are uncompromising in their excellence and inclusive in their appeal. This season the RPO is thrilled to welcome its new Music Director, dynamic young maestro Vasily Petrenko—Artistic Director of the State Academic Symphony Orchestra of Russia, and Chief Conductor of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra. And CAMA celebrates the return of Russian-American pianist Olga Kern, now recognized as one of her generation’s great artists. Having jumpstarted her U.S. career with an historic Gold Medal at the 2001 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition—the first woman to do so in more than thirty years—she was also first prize winner of the Rachmaninoff International Piano Competition at age seventeen.
