Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No.1

Charlotte Corderoy Conductor
Martin James Bartlett Piano

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

This concert is now sold out. However, there are still tickets available for our concert at Cadogan Hall on Tuesday 5 March.


Tales of a thousand nights: Rimsky-Korsakov, Liadov, and Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto. 

Once upon a time...  

Composers have always told stories: an enchanted lake ripples in the moonlight, hinting at tales untold; four horns throw down a challenge; a piano strides forward into combat, and, in Imperial Russia, Rimsky-Korsakov retells the One Thousand and One Nights stories through music of dazzling colour and unforgettable melody.

There’s a good reason why Scheherazade is so popular, and conductor Charlotte Corderoy will relish every note.

Martin James Bartlett, meanwhile, is the soloist in Tchaikovsky’s epic First Piano Concerto – since his triumph in the 2014 BBC Young Musician competition, critics have declared him “not only a prodigy of the piano, but an accomplished artist who counts among the greats of his generation”. So, if you’re sitting comfortably…

Unfortunately Ben Glassberg is no longer available to conduct this concert as previously advertised. We are pleased to announce that Charlotte Corderoy will step in as his replacement.


Large print versions and digital formats of the programme for this concert are available on request for customers with accessibility requirements. Please email your request to Doran Crowhurst crowhurstd@rpo.co.uk at least one full week before the performance.
