An esteemed conductor, an acclaimed soloist, a great orchestra, and a phenomenal program! Among the UK's finest symphonic ensembles, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra enjoys a reputation for first-class performances across a diverse repertoire. Joining the orchestra's new artistic director and principal conductor Charles Dutoit and these exceptional music makers is French pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet, who dazzled Cal Performances audiences last season with his virtuoso all-Liszt program. "Every note he fashions is a pearl...the joy, brilliance, and musicality of his performance could not be missed" (New York Times).
Program: Kodály: Dances of Galánta • Liszt: Piano Concerto No. 2 in A major, S. 125 • Brahms: Symphony No. 1 in C minor, Op. 68
