About the Event

Experience a highly‐anticipated concert featuring classical music by Jean Sibelius, Richard Strauss, and Igor Fyodorovich Stravinsky at London's Royal Albert Hall. Legendary violinist Maxim Vengerov, accompanied by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, graces the stage in a not‐to‐be‐missed performance. Vengerov's illustrious career as a violinist and conductor, spanning over four decades, promises a magical evening filled with award‐winning talent.

Maxim Vengerov, hailed as 'a virtuoso at the peak of his powers' by The Guardian, shines as the perfect soloist for Sibelius's Violin Concerto, capturing the essence of his Finnish heritage and the nation's desire for independence. Music Director Vasily Petrenko brings the evening to a dramatic close with Stravinsky's musical interpretation of the Russian fairytale, The Firebird. The theatrical ballet music takes listeners on a journey from foreboding beginnings to enchanting strings that evoke the magic of the Firebird.


  • Richard Strauss – Don Juan
  • Jean Sibelius – Violin Concerto
  • Igor Fyodorovich Stravinsky – The Firebird (complete ballet)

Orchestra, Soloist: Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

Acknowledged as one of the UK’s most prodigious orchestras, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO) enjoys an international reputation for bringing audiences worldwide first‐class performances and the highest possible standards of music‐making across a diverse range of musical repertoire. This was the vision of the Orchestra’s flamboyant founder Sir Thomas Beecham, whose legacy is maintained today as the Orchestra continues to thrive.

Conductor: Vasily Petrenko

Born in St Petersburg in 1976, Vasily Petrenko is recognised as one of the exceptional musicians of his generation. Petrenko was still in his teens when he became resident conductor at St Petersburg Opera and Ballet Theatre, and has gone on to work with some of the world’s finest orchestras, earning international acclaim – and top prizes – for his inspirational performances.

His Liverpool debut with the Phil in November 2004, and subsequent appearances in October and December 2005, created huge excitement: “…memorable for the sheer electricity emanating from the podium. Instantly there was a sense of dialogue between conductor and musicians, between one orchestral family and another, between one phrase and the next, to release natural‐seeming eloquence from his players.”  The Daily Telegraph
