Sakari Oramo conductor
Thomas Kelly piano
RCM Symphony Orchestra

Beethoven Piano Concerto no 4 in G major op 58
Shostakovich Symphony no 10 in E minor op 93

Sakari Oramo, chief conductor of the BBC Symphony Orchestra, directs an unmissable programme of repertoire played by the RCM Symphony Orchestra.

Rising star and RCM pianist Thomas Kelly takes centre stage for Beethoven's Piano Concerto no 4 – widely considered the pinnacle of piano concerto repertoire. To add to a number of accolades, Thomas won second prize at the Hastings International Piano Concerto Competition in March and was also a finalist at the 2021 Leeds International Piano Competition.

This concert also features Shostakovich's impassioned Tenth Symphony; 50 minutes in duration and notable for its 48 minutes of despair and tragedy (depicting Stalin’s regime) and two minutes of resolute triumph.
