Daniel Hogan, Alvin Arumugam, Michal Oren and Alexander Mackinder conductors
Hamish Brown and Oliver Cuttriss pianos

Ravel Ma mère l'Oye 
Arnold Concerto for two pianos
Respighi Trittico Botticelliano
Hindemith Symphonic Metamorphosis of Themes by Carl Maria von Weber

The RCM's postgraduate conductors lead us through the fairy-tale world of Ravel's Mother Goose, from its piccolo-twittering birds of Tom Thumb to the clarinet and contrabassoon characterisation of Beauty and the Beast.

Also on the programme is Malcolm Arnold’s Concerto for two pianos (three hands) – a delightful work originally written for the legendary husband and wife partnership Cyril Smith and Phyllis Sellick after Smith lost the use of his left hand.

Big Give Christmas Challenge

This December we welcome gifts via the Big Give Christmas Challenge to our Scholarships Fund. This unique opportunity allows every online donation we receive via the campaign page, from 12pm on 29 November - 12pm on 6 December, to be doubled.

The Scholarships Fund offers vital support to our talented musicians to access world-class education regardless of their background. Your contribution can make their dream of performing on the world stage a reality.

Thank you for helping us secure the future of music!
