The celebrated Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra returns to medici.tv under the baton of their illustrious principal conductor, the prodigious Lahav Shani! Joining them is a very special guest: star pianist Seong-Jin Cho, winner of the prestigious 2015 International Chopin Competition in Warsaw.
To begin the evening, Cho takes the monumentally challenging solo role in Tchaikovsky's passionate and instantly recognizable Piano Concerto in B-flat Minor, one of the piano repertoire's most demanding and most beloved works. Maestro Shani and the RPhO continue the festivities with the equally famous Symphonie Fantastique by Hector Berlioz, one of the best-known examples of program music, deeply evocative and bewitching.
