Wagner Lohengrin: Prelude to Act I
Rachmaninov Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini
Brahms Symphony No.2

Manoj Kamps Conductor
Federico Colli Piano

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

Join the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and Manoj Kamps for an evening of sparkling music.

The stage is set by Wagner’s ethereal Prelude to Lohengrin where Wagner uses music to magically depict the Holy Grail descending from Heaven to earth starting with beautiful, shimmering strings.

Pianist Federico Colli then joins the Orchestra for Rachmaninov’s much-loved Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini – a nimble ode to what has to be one of the most instantly recognisable themes of the repertoire.

Brahms’ Symphony No.2 stands out as one of his greatest musical achievements. It immerses the audience in inspired orchestration, a devastatingly powerful Adagio and a triumphant finale.
