A note from Royal Philharmonic Orchestra:

“Following the Government’s announcement encouraging social distancing, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO) will cease its concert programme until Easter 2020. Given the health risks presented by the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra is acutely aware of the need to protect the health of concert-goers, venue staff and the ensemble itself.

With millions of people self-isolating and working from home, the RPO will soon be introducing a comprehensive ‘RPO At Home’ digital programme that is intended to enrich people’s home routines, to help lift spirits during these unprecedented times.

Please do keep in touch by visiting the Orchestra’s website and social media channels, where you can find videos, blogs and Podcasts. Further announcements on scheduled RPO concerts beyond Easter will be made in due course.”


Mendelssohn’s Hebrides Overture is a voyage of discovery across a sweeping, untempered Scottish seascape. Rodrigo’s iconic Concierto de Aranjuez, performed by classical guitarist Sean Shibe, instantly recalls the distinctive favours of Spanish Romanticism with the wondrous use of heart-wrenching melody and sustained harmonies shared between soloist and orchestra.

Closing the evening is Rimsky-Korsakov’s fantastical Scheherazade, reinterpreting the classic legend of One Thousand and One Arabian Nights in dreamlike fashion as shimmering strings and entrancing woodwind conjure visions of musical escapism.

Duration: approx. 2 hours (incl. interval)
