This January 17th sees renowned conductor Rory MacDonald and acclaimed pianist Lambis Vassiliadis take the stage for the season’s third concert. Rory MacDonald makes his debut with the London Philharmonic Orchestra having previously established himself leading the BBC Symphony Hallé and Royal Philharmonic orchestras and also conducting at the Royal Opera House and English National Opera.


The prolific Greek musician Lambis Vassiliadis will perform Chopin’s fabulous Piano Concerto No.2, a masterful piece which so endeared Chopin to his Paris audiences and helped forge his career in music.

The evening’s programme also includes Antonín Dvo?ák’s structurally ambitious, joyous and lively Eighth Symphony in G-major which draws heavily on folk music influences from his native Bohemia.

Engelbert Humperdinck

Starting the evening will be Engelbert Humperdinck’s magical Prelude, Hansel and Gretel. A fairytale opera – initially a Singspiel written for his sister’s children – it soars, dances and spellbinds whilst also featuring one of the most beautiful French horn chorales ever written

It promises to be a superb and memorable evening featuring some of the most accomplished and well-loved pieces from the classical music repertoire.
