About the Event

In this highly‐anticipated concert, hear the mellifluous sounds of classical music by Frederic Chopin, Richard Strauss and Modest Petrovich Mussorgsky at London's treasured and world‐renowned Royal Albert Hall.
Star pianist Yunchan Lim joins the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra for this exclusive Royal Albert Hall performance. As the youngest‐ever winner of the Gold Award at the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition in 2022, he has since enjoyed invitations from leading ensembles and venues worldwide, resulting in dazzling performances that have been lauded by audiences and critics alike. His performances combine a prodigious technique with a depth and musical maturity far beyond his 20 years. Yunchan performs Chopin’s Second Piano Concerto, a work in which Chopin took the piano and transformed it into the ultimate vehicle for the Romantic imagination, filled with a passion for his Polish homeland.

In the second half of this concert, the RPO's Music Director, Vasily Petrenko, transports us to the Alps on an epic musical journey that celebrates the glory of nature. Written for a vast orchestra of over 100 players, Richard Strauss’ thrilling tone poem takes us from sunrise to sunset on an expedition through shimmering glaciers and flowering meadows, where we will feel the full force of nature as the mountains are battered by a powerful storm. This is music that demands a grand setting, and they don’t come much grander than the magnificent Royal Albert Hall.  


  • Modest Petrovich Mussorgsky – Night on the Bare Mountain, orch. Rimsky‐Korsakov
  • Frederic Chopin – Piano Concerto No.2

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
