Bacewicz Overture
Saint-Saëns Cello Concerto no 1 in A minor op 33
R Strauss Also sprach Zarathustra op 30

The Royal College of Music is thrilled to welcome Vasily Petrenko, world-renowned conductor and Music Director of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

RCM Concerto Competition winner Shizuku Tatsuno takes the spotlight as soloist in Saint-Saëns' virtuosic piece considered by many – including Shostakovich and Rachmaninov – to be the greatest of all cello concertos.

The RCM Symphony Orchestra also brings you Grażyna Bacewicz's energetic and powerful Overture, which premiered in Poland in 1945, and Richard Strauss’ tone poem Also sprach Zarathustra, with its stunning 'Sunrise' fanfare you’ll recognise from Stanley Kubrick's 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey.

This performance will be streamed live. To watch, please subscribe to the Royal College of Music’s YouTube channel and switch on Notifications, or watch at www.rcm.ac.uk/live

This concert is also taking place on 23 March.

Supported by Her Serene Highness Heidi Princess von Hohenzollern HonRCM
