Duet Philharmonic Orchestra

Part of Classical Season

Comprised of some of the UK's leading music students, the Duet Philharmonic Orchestra is joined by Oxana Shevchenko, winner of the 2010 Scottish International Piano Competition.

The Duet Philharmonic Orchestra regret to announce that Sheku Kanneh-Mason is unable to appear to perform Dvořák's Rondo as previously advertised.

Oxana Shevchenko, who won the 2010 Scottish International Piano Competition for Prokofiev's Second Piano Concerto, with its huge cadenza and sweeping melodies, joins the Duet Philharmonic Orchestra for a programme of Prokofiev and Mahler.

Prokofiev's dance Montagues and Capulets became famous as the theme for Alan Sugar's The Apprentice, and was also an inspiration for the theme tune to The Archers.

Mahler's transcendental Fifth Symphony was famously used in Death in Venice, chosen for its warm, languid melodies.
