Liszt Piano Concerto no 2 in A major S 125
Vaughan Williams A Sea Symphony

Continuing our celebrations for Vaughan Williams' 150th anniversary, renowned choral conductor and RCM alumnus Adrian Partington leads the monumental work that firmly put the composer on the map.

Created over six years from 1903–1909, Vaughan Williams' vivid depiction of the ocean was where the composer truly established his voice. The piece fuses influences from church music, folk melodies, and harmonies reminiscent of Ravel, with vast choruses animating the words of American poet Walt Whitman.

Alongside, RCM Concerto Competition Winner Misha Kaploukhii tackles Liszt's second and final piano concerto – an unconventional work in one single, sweeping movement, where piano and orchestra are woven together in expansive symphonic textures.

This concert is also taking place on 28 October
