A new work, amongst some classical favourites!

Spring concert featuring some fantastic music!

The Philharmonic have been working with Sheffield-based composer, Tom James (one quarter of Platform4) to present a new commission.

Tom plays French horn and studied Music and German at the University of Sheffield before completing a PhD in composition. Tom's compositions range from the simple to the complex, and from the joyful to the serious - mainly chamber works. Influences include many 'B's: Bach, Berio, Birtwistle, Boulez, Bridge… The Phil are looking forward to performing Tom's new work for orchestra!

They are also featuring pianist, Thomas Kelly to perform Shostakovich's Second Piano Concerto. Thomas Kelly was born in 1998 in Bromley and studied at the Purcell School and Royal College of Music. After winning the Purcell School's concerto prize, he performed the Brahms 2nd Concerto in the Cadogan Hall with Moritz Gnann conducting in March 2018. In August 2017, he participated in the Pianale International Piano Competition in Germany where he won the EMCY prize, senior jury prize and the privilege to give a recital in Bayreuth in July 2018.

The Philharmonic will also be playing Beethoven's Symphony No.1 - Written when Beethoven was only 25. The First Symphony displays the strong influence of Haydn and Mozart, while still hinting of the greatness to come.
