The English Schools’ Orchestra is delighted to return to Cadogan Hall for its 27th annual concert.

This year’s exciting programme opens with Elgar’s In the South (Alassio), a lively and cheerful concert overture describing Elgar’s visit to Alassio in Italy during the winter of 1903-04.

After the Italian theme of the opening piece, the Orchestra is delighted to be joined by Italian pianist Gabriele Strata to perform Rachmaninov’s Rhapsody on a Theme by Paganini. This single-movement piece is a set of variations based on Paganini’s theme and has become a favourite for audiences since Rachmaninov first performed as the soloist in November 1934.

Finally, the Orchestra performs Stravinsky’s masterpiece The Rite of Spring. Famous for causing a riot at its premiere, this ground-breaking piece is being performed by the Orchestra for the first time in its history and promises to be an energetic end to a fantastic programme.

Please note start time.

Duration: approx. 2 hours 15 mins (incl. interval)
