Description

The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by the great Charles Dutoit, makes a return visit to Symphony Hall. Fine French pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet brings his special magic, performing with the RPO (“Britain’s National Orchestra”) on Camille Saint-Saëns’ exotic final piano concerto, the “Egyptian” No. 5. The concert opens with Hector Berlioz’s brilliant Le Corsaire Overture and closes with Maestro Dutoit leading the Royal Phil in Piotr Tchaikovsky’s tempestuous Symphony No. 5.
