The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra’s opening concert of its 2022-23 season at Cadogan Hall stars Isata Kanneh-Mason, who plays Clara Schumann’s rich and melodious Piano Concerto in her first performance as the Orchestra’s Artist-in-Residence.

With the hymn-like tunes and icy harmonies of Sibelius’ Symphony No. 3 providing the concert’s centrepiece under the baton of Estonian conductor Anu Tali, the piece marks a shift from Sibelius’ heart-on-sleeve Romanticism to a starker Classical style.

Tali also conducts her compatriot Arvo Pärt’s Fratres for strings and percussion, with simple but deeply moving lines of melody that build to a thrilling crescendo.

‘[Isata] is a pianist who makes lines sing beautifully and virtuosic passages dance, finding intimacy and eloquence at telling moments’ (BBC Music Magazine)

Duration: approx. 2 hours 10 mins (incl. 20-minute interval)
