The Philharmonia Orchestra
The Philharmonia Orchestra comes to the Royal Festival Hall this May to perform a trio of pieces featuring conductor Vasily Petrenko, tenor Mark Padmore and Katy Woolley on horn. Schubert’s Unfinished Symphony is presented to showcase the two completed movements, credited with ushering in the romantic style, which continues to resonate in Britten’s Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings. Following an interval, the orchestra will perform Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 5, originally produced as an artistic response to criticism from Stalin’s cultural watchdogs.
Schubert, Symphony No. 8, Unfinished
Britten, Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings
Shostakovich, Symphony No. 5
A 2013 performance by the Philharmonia Orchestra with Petrenko conducting received a crowd-pleasing 4/5 from The Guardian, while the orchestra have so far gathered over 147,600 likes on Facebook. The critic praised the combination of the musicians and conductor, leading to a memorable show with plenty of nuances.
