Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

Guildford International Concert Season

G Live, Guildford

Sat 8 February 2020

GL: GICS - RPO Feb 2020

Conductor Kerem Hasan
Piano Leon McCawley**

Kodály Dances of Galanta
Grieg Piano Concerto*
D vořák Symphony No. 9

The second of our visits by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra includes two of the most popular pieces in the entire orchestral repertoire – Grieg's Piano Concerto and Dvořák’s exhilarating Symphony No. 9, From the New World

The programme begins with a less well known work, the Hungarian composer Kodály’s exquisite miniatures, Dances of Galánta, which are rich in Hungarian folk music and a wonderful evocation of the Hungarian spirit. 

*Please note: This has been changed from Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No. 2 which is in the Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra Programme. 

**Due to a hand injury, Mark Bebbington regrets that he will be unable to play in this evening's concert. In his place, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra is excited to welcome Leon McCawley to perform Greig's Piano Concerto. One of Britain’s foremost pianists, Leon McCawley has forged a highly successful career since winning first prize in the 1993 International Beethoven Piano Competition in Vienna and second prize at the Leeds International Piano Competition the same year. Since then, his concert performances and extensive discography have established him as a pianist of great integrity and variety, bringing freshness and vitality to Classical, Romantic and 20th century repertoire.
