Join us for an evening of sumptuous classical music with the Thames Philharmonia. This concert features a captivating programme that showcases the emotional depth and technical brilliance of two monumental works from the Romantic era.

We open with Elgar’s Symphony No. 1 in A-flat major, a masterpiece that combines grandeur with lyrical beauty, reflecting the composer’s profound vision and mastery of orchestral colour. Elgar’s symphony, praised for its noble themes and intricate orchestrations, promises to transport you through a journey of dramatic contrasts and passionate expressions.

The evening continues with Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No. 3 in D minor, featuring the incredibly talented Soo-Yeon Ham as our piano soloist. Renowned for its technical challenges and expressive depth, this concerto is often referred to as the “Mount Everest” of piano concertos. It demands unparalleled skill from the soloist, weaving together lush melodies with virtuosic passages. This concerto remains a testament to Rachmaninov’s genius, combining intense emotion with breathtaking virtuosity, and with Soo-Yeon Ham at the piano, it promises to be an unforgettable performance.

Experience the power and beauty of these iconic compositions, brought to life by the Thames Philharmonia’s passionate performance and the exceptional artistry of Soo-Yeon Ham. It’s an evening not to be missed by any lover of classical music.
