Philharmonia Orchestra - Korea-UK Year of Culture: Closing Concert

Part of Classical Season 2017/18

The Philharmonia Orchestra is joined by conductor Han-Na Chang and pianist Sunwook Kim for a special Korea-UK concert.

Han-Na Chang has been called `a diminutive, dynamic firebrand’ (The Guardian) with `an extraordinary sense of fearless adventure’ (The Times).

She comes together with pianist Sunwook Kim for the celebratory closing concert of the 2017/18 Korea-UK Season.

The timeless, towering chords of Grieg’s Piano Concerto lead into the turbulence of Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony. In his own words, Tchaikovsky’s Symphony marked his `complete resignation before Fate’. `Fate’ winds unrelenting through each movement, interrupting a love song, cutting in on a waltz and finally taking on the form of a march into the blazing finale.

This concert is presented in partnership with the Korean Cultural Centre UK as part of the 2017-2018 Korea-UK Season.
