We celebrate the start of our 2019/20 season with Bartók’s virtuosic Concerto for Orchestra, in which every instrument gets a moment in the spotlight. Webern’s Passacaglia was the piece that launched his career: a fond farewell to the nineteenth century and to the music of Brahms, as well as a foretaste of the radical ideas he was about to pursue.

One of London’s finest amateur orchestras, Fulham Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1958 and performs regularly in London with soloists of international standing. Their performances have been broadcast on Radio 3, and hailed as ‘magnificent … a splendid band’ by The Bruckner Journal, and ‘a quite wonderful performance’ by Bachtrack.

Noted for the integrity and breadth of his musicianship as soloist, chamber musician and recording artist, Richard has been recognised for his ‘musical intelligence and pristine facility’ (International Record Review), ‘amazing decisiveness’, and ‘tumultuous performance’ (Daily Telegraph). His playing is frequently broadcast on BBC Radio 3 and has featured on BBC Two, BBC Four, Classic FM and Sky Arts. He won the British Contemporary Piano Competition in 2006 and was selected for representation by Young Classical Artists Trust (YCAT) in 2011.
