The celebrated London Philharmonia Orchestra, whose past conductors have included legendary maestros such as Toscanini, Klemperer, Karajan and Mutti, resumes as of this year its prolific artistic activity, having as its principal conductor the promising Finnish maestro Santtu-Matias Rouvali, whose consummate musicianship has won the Orchestra’s trust. Under his direction, the Orchestra promises a reading full of dynamism of Tchaikovsky’s passionate Fourth Symphony and Rossini’s Semiramide Overture. Today’s concert also features South Korean pianist Seong-Jin Cho, winner of the 2015 International Chopin Piano Competition, who will be performing a true pianistic feat, playing the soloist’s part in Prokofiev’s extremely demanding Second piano concerto.
