Colors flow when Ryan Bancroft leads visiting Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and pianist Seong-Jin Cho.
Since winning the famous Chopin Competition in 2015, South Korean pianist Seong-Jin Cho is one of the world’s most sought-after soloists. At this concert we hear him in Camille Saint-Saën’s colorful 5th Piano Concerto. It was composed in Luxor and because of the influences from there it is often called ‘the Egyptian one’. Saint-Saëns himself said that it represented a sea voyage.
We also get to hear Rachmaninov’s very last work, the symphonic dances in which the long-established American composer dreams of returning to Russia. Plus the American Pulitzer and Grammy Award winner Caroline Shaw’s dreamily imaginative Entr’acte, music inspired by Joseph Haydn.
The award-winning conductor Ryan Bancroft, also from the USA, leads the visiting Swedish Royal Philharmonic. As of this season, Bancroft is the orchestra’s chief conductor.

Det komponerande universalgeniet
Rachmaninov har skrivit några av musikhistoriens mest spelade och älskade pianokonserter. På bilder ser han ofta sorgsen ut och blev bland annat kallad “två meter ryskt svårmod”. Det finns en sorgsen grundton i hans liv och den har sin berättelse.
