Vasily Petrenko final RLPO concerts as part of summer season at the Phil


The RLPO will perform nine new concerts at the Philharmonic Hall during June and July.

They include two final appearances for Vasily Petrenko before he leaves the Phil after a 15-year tenure as first principal and then chief conductor.

He will then assume his new role as conductor laureate at Hope Street while he takes up his new post as music director with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in London.

Tickets for all concerts are on sale now.

On June 22, pianist Víkingur Ólafsson will be in recital with a programme of Debussy and Rameau.

Ólafsson returns on June 24 when he will join the orchestra and conductor Andrew Manze to play both Bach’s piano concerto No 5 and Mozart’s piano concerto No 19. The programme also features Haydn’s ‘Military’ Symphony.

Alasdair Molloy presents a Family Concert: Pirate Party on June 27 with Rebecca Tong on the podium.

Pianist Isata Kanneh-Mason, who appeared in recital with brother Sheku at the Philharmonic Hall just before lockdown last February, will join the full orchestra for the first time on July 1. The programme features work by Mendelssohn, Widmann and Beethoven, and Ryan Bancroft conducts.

Then on July 3, baroque ensemble Red Priest presents its Truly Madly Baroque evening including works by Bach, Vivaldi, Albinoni and Tartini.

Vasily Petrenko takes the baton on July 9-10 with a programme yet to be announced.

And then the Liverpool Philharmonic Youth Orchestra takes centre stage on July 18 with two concerts, one featuring its string ensembles and one starring its wind and brass ensembles.
