Royal Philharmonic Orchestra 2018-19 Resident Season

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra 2018-19 Resident Season

Welcome to the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra’s (RPO) 2018-19 season at Cadogan Hall. We invite you to join us to experience a varied programme of orchestral music in the immersive and intimate surroundings of our Resident Home at Cadogan Hall.

To open the season, the RPO welcomes back its first-ever Artist-in-Residence Esther Yoo to perform the first of two concertos (September and November) and to close the season in June we introduce our 2019 Artist-in-Residence, cellist Kian Soltani. British conductor Mark Wigglesworth makes his debut with the RPO in a quintessentially English programme (April), and the Orchestra introduces to London the fiery talents of a new generation of artists such as Mariam Batsashvili (November), Alpesh Chauhan (June) and Cristian Măcelaru (June).

Following on from the success of last season’s Myths and Fairytales series, the RPO’s dynamic Principal Associate Conductor Alexander Shelley embarks on a thought-provoking new series, Seeking New Horizons. Through the music of Rachmaninov, Dvořák, Bartok and de Falla, Alexander takes us on a curated musical journey, exploring the lives of these composers who, by choice, fear or political protest, left their homeland and the effect this had on their music. For these concerts, we invite you to enjoy an enhanced listening experience using EnCue, a free app which delivers real-time programme notes during the concert straight to your mobile or tablet device.
