Ravel Pavane pour une infante défunte
Ravel Piano Concerto for the Left Hand
Rimsky-Korsakov Scheherazade

Juya Shin conductor*
Nicholas McCarthy piano

A wicked sultan, a beautiful princess, and a thousand and one nights of pleasure: Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherezade might sound like a box of Turkish Delight, but make no mistake, it’s one of classical music’s most sensuous treats.

So let the LPO and 2024/25 Fellow Conductor Juya Shin show you a world of glittering excess, swashbuckling thrills and pure silken seduction, all painted in sumptuous orchestral colour. First though, enjoy Ravel at his most personal and powerful, as the ‘astonishing’ (Classic FM) pianist Nicholas McCarthy plays the thrilling Piano Concerto for the Left Hand. Trust us: hearing is believing.
