Mendelssohn Hebrides Overture
Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No.3
Dvorak Symphony No.8

Conductor Thomas Dausgaard
Piano John Lill
Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

Join us for the 70th Birthday Celebration of acclaimed British pianist John Lill, declared by The Independent to be "still a majestic presence... one was immediately drawn in by the unforced, unselfconscious beauty of the sound." Lill will be performing Rachmaninov's passionate Piano Concerto No.3.

The concert opens with Mendelssohn's Hebrides Overture, written when the composer was on holiday in Scotland, conjuring musical pictures of the rugged landscape. The result is a work full of tempestuous drama and wistful lyricism. Completing this evening's programme is Dvorák's Eighth Symphony, one of his most exuberant works, drawing on Bohemian folk music for inspiration.
