The sophisticated, transfigured Baroque dances of Ravel’s Le tombeau de Couperin offset Shostakovich’s boisterous Piano Concerto No. 1, with its cheeky sprinkling of quotations from Classical giants Beethoven and Haydn among others.
These two works of neo-Baroque and neo-Classical influences are followed by Mozart’s final symphony, the ‘Jupiter’, a high point of the ‘true’ Classical-period canon. Nicknamed posthumously for its majestic first movement and epic finale, the work is a summation of Mozart’s entire symphonic output with its unique blend of grandeur and subtlety.

9 ways you can support us
This extended closure has put the Royal Albert Hall, like many other venues, in a perilous situation.
Without shows on we have lost our major source of funding, but there remains a number of ways you can continue to support the Royal Albert Hall during this crisis:
- It will not be possible to have an audience at the Royal Albert Hall for this concert
- Conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen is no longer able to appear with the Philharmonia Orchestra on Wednesday 9 September due to the recent extension of COVID-19 quarantine restrictions in Finland. Conductor Paavo Jarvi will now appear with the Philharmonia Orchestra, British pianist Benjamin Grosvenor, and trumpeter Jason Evans at the Royal Albert Hall.
