Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

Our opening concert for the 2022-23 season at Cadogan Hall stars Isata Kanneh-Mason, who plays Clara Schumann’s rich and melodious Piano Concerto in her first performance as our Artist-in-Residence.

With the hymn-tunes and icy harmonies of Sibelius’ Symphony No.3 providing the concert’s centrepiece under the baton of Estonian conductor Anu Tali, the piece marks a shift from Sibelius’ heart-on-sleeve Romanticism to a starker Classical style. Tali also conducts her compatriot Arvo Pärt’s Fratres for strings and percussion, with simple but deeply moving lines of melody that build to a thrilling crescendo.

“[Isata] is a pianist who makes lines sing beautifully and virtuosic passages dance, finding intimacy and eloquence at telling moments"
BBC Music Magazine
