- Concerto for Orchestra
- Alexander Shelley

Imagine a concerto where instead of showcasing the skill of one soloist, every instrument that makes up the orchestra can shine; resulting in a joyful celebration of music. Bartók’s Concerto for Orchestra is all that, and more. The RPO’s Principal Guest Conductor Alexander Shelley has made this the glittering finale of a concert that begins with another folk-inspired work – Kodály’s Dances of Galánta. In between, enjoy Liszt’s much-loved First Piano Concerto, full of power, poetry and drama – all within reach of soloist Mariam Batsashvili.
