Performers

Kerem Hasan conductor
Fumiya Koido piano (winner of the Hastings International Piano Competition 2019)
Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

Rising British star Kerem Hasan conducts the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in this delightful concert that opens with Weber’s overture to his opera Oberon, before 2019 Hastings International Piano Concerto Competition winner Fumiya Koido joins the RPO for a dazzling performance of Beethoven’s uplifting Piano Concerto No. 4.

Rimsky-Korsakov’s fantastical Scheherazade reinterprets the classic legend of One Thousand and One Arabian Nights in dreamlike fashion, as shimmering strings and enchanting woodwind conjure visions of musical escapism, bathed with vivid colour and seafaring drama.

This concert is kindly supported by Fairlight Arts Trust.

Duration: approx. 2 hours (incl. 20-min interval)
