New Season (1)

Tonight we are going to the the first concert in the new S.W. Mitchell Virtuoso Piano series, presented at the Cadogan Hall by the London Festival Orchestra, directed by Ross Pople. Tonight's concert has a Dutch theme, with music by Wassenaar, Robin de Raaff, Hendirk Andriessen, Henk Badings, Theo Loevendie and Alphons Diepenbrock. The young Dutch pianist Ralph van Raat will be playing Robin de Raaf's Piano Concerto. The Piano Concerto and Theo Loevendie's The 5 Drives will both be UK premieres.

The series continues on 11 October when Nicolai Demidenko will be playing Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 9 in E flat Major. This will be accompanied by Schubert's 5th Symphony. In each of the concerts the orchestra will be playing one of Wassenaer's Concerti Armonici based on Pergolesi.
In February Andrei Korobeinikov plays Beethoven's 4th Piano Concerto and in March, Duravka Tomsic plays Brahms 1st Piano concerto. Further information from Cadogan Hall.
