The first of two performances in our 2021-2022 season from the ever-inspiring RPO begins with Franz Liszt’s symphonic poem, Hamlet - a dramatic character study of Shakespeare’s avenging prince.

Completing the programme is Mozart’s Violin Concerto No.3, written when the composer was just 19, and the second symphony by Finland’s Jean Sibelius, which is audibly influenced by his 1901 Italian trip.

The RPO is joined by Barnabás Kelemen, the lauded Hungarian violinist whose numerous awards and accolades include Liszt and Kossuth Prizes and Prima and Gramophone Awards, as well as the Knight’s Cross of the Order of Merit of the Republic of Hungary.

Beginning her career as a pianist, Anu Tali is at the forefront of an exciting generation of international conductors characterised by an energetic freshness and ingenious creativity. Since co-founding the Nordic Symphony Orchestra in 1997, she’s appeared with major orchestras the world over, and been the subject of numerous documentaries celebrating her work.
