COLERIDGE-TAYLOR Ballade for Orchestra
RACHMANINOV Piano Concerto No.2
BEETHOVEN Symphony No.6, ‘Pastoral’
Kevin John Edusei Conductor
Roman Kosyakov Piano
Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
Experience the emotional power of music as conductor Kevin John Edusei and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra bring to life well-loved orchestral classics alongside a lesser-known gem. Coleridge-Taylor showed an early affinity for music and the melodic Ballade for Orchestra announced his composing career in style, receiving its premiere at the Three Choirs Festival following a recommendation by Sir Edward Elgar.
Roman Kosyakov, winner of the Hastings International Piano Concerto Competition, puts his own stamp on Rachmaninov’s passionate Piano Concerto No.2 before the Orchestra embraces Beethoven’s expansive ‘Pastoral’ Symphony, inspired by his love of nature.
The coach will pick us up from Windsor End near the Greyhound pub at 4pm for our journey into London.
We should arrive in good time allowing everyone the opportunity to have a meal at one of the several local restaurants or cafes before returning to the Cadogan Hall.
The performance starts at 7.30pm so I would suggest we aim to be in the foyer a little after 7pm. The coach will be near the theatre at 10pm for our drive back to Beaconsfield.
Tickets will be distributed on the day.
Some members may wish to book a restaurant in advance, and this could be a safer option than turning up on chance.
The price for this most enjoyable experience is £39.00 for the coach and concert (35% discount on the full ticket price of £45).
