In light of the coronavirus outbreak and current restrictions, this performance has been cancelled.

With full support from the Orchestra, we are doing our utmost to support the national effort in reducing the spread of coronavirus, and the health and well-being of all our visitors, staff members, and visiting performers is our number one priority.

The drama and delight of Rossini’s Overture to Il signor Bruschino opens this lunchtime concert as musicians from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra bring you a programme of incomparable orchestral music.

Principal Cello Richard Harwood performs Elgar’s Cello Concerto, one of the greatest works of English Romanticism ever written, the with unforgettable melodies and sheer emotional intensity woven throughout the piece. Iain Farrington’s arrangement retains all of Elgar’s stirring power and sensitivity with the smaller forces of a chamber orchestra.

The rich colours of the French Romantic style are unmistakable in Fauré’s Pavane in music that flows effortlessly between the strings and woodwinds of the orchestra, and is followed in the concert’s finale by music from the ballet Hoops by the composer Poulenc, a spiritual successor of the French tradition that owes much to Fauré.

This is a socially distanced performance.

Duration: approx. 75 minutes (no interval)
