Royal Music Treatment by World's Greatest Stars!

For more than seven decades, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO) has been at the forefront of music-making in Great Britain.  From Beethoven and Shostakovich to Queen and Star Trek – an attractive repertoire performed by the best music virtuosi, who give the most spectacular classical music concerts in London. Due to numerous successes throughout the world over many years, they rightfully and proudly boast the title of Britain's national orchestra.

The history of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra is interesting and dynamic. The orchestra was founded by Sir Thomas Beecham in 1946, with the intention of presenting the highest standards of musical performance to the United Kingdom and the whole world. In over seven decades of its existence, the Orchestra has become synonymous for premier quality, versatility and tirelessness in artistic (and social) activities. The Orchestra's schedule is filled with concerts within regular concert seasons in London’s prominent venues, the Royal Albert Hall, Cadogan Hall and Royal Festival Hall within Southbank Centre, as well as with concerts throughout Great Britain. The orchestra goes on numerous international tours, records albums, film and television music, even music for video games, and it is highly engaged in educational and social projects for the young, homeless, ill and abandoned people. The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra draws attention by outstanding playing and performing traditional repertoire and contemporary works by leading contemporary composers, such as Sir Peter Maxwell Davies and Sir John Tavener. Besides that, it also participates in crossover projects with great pop stars (Sting, the Beach Boys and others). The orchestra has been led by numerous renowned conductors, among whom Rudolf Kempe, Antal Doráti, Walter Weller, André Previn, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Yuri Temirkanov, Daniele Gatti and Charles Dutoit. This list of the Orchestra’s great conductors continues with Vasily Petrenko, who will assume the title of Music Director Designate in August 2020. He will conduct the Orchestra's first appearance at Lisinski Hall after a 13-year break. They will perform pieces by Benjamin Britten and Sergei Prokofiev. German-Japanese pianist Alice Sara Ott will join them in Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 3. She made her Zagreb debut at the Croatian Music Institute in 2004. Back then she was an extraordinarily talented student of the outstanding piano professor Karl-Heinz Kämmerling and now she is one of the world’s most sought-after classic pianists of today!
