SAINT-SAENS Piano Concerto No. 5, “Egyptian”
STRAVINSKY: Petrushka (1911)

The London-based Royal Philharmonic returns under the baton of its artistic director and principal conductor Charles Dutoit in a program including Respighi’s symphonic poem Fountains of Rome and Stravinsky’s Petrushka (1911). Pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet joins them Camille Saint-Saëns' exotic Piano Concerto No. 5, “Egyptian.”

One of today’s most sought-after soloists, Grammy-nominated pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet is celebrated for his rare ability to combine poetic musical sensibilities with dazzling technical prowess and a talent for coaxing subtle and surprising colors and textures from each work he plays.

Widely regarded for its exceptional quality and versatility, the Royal Philharmonic was formed by Sir Thomas Beecham in 1946 and since then has been directed by an illustrious list of distinguished conductors including Rudolf Kempe, Antal Doráti, André Previn, Vladimir Ashkenazy, and Daniele Gatti.
