The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO)—celebrating its 75th anniversary this year—performs 200 concerts each season to a worldwide audience of more than half-a-million people. The RPO embraces a broad repertoire that enables it to reach the most diverse audience of any British symphony orchestra. The RPO collaborates with the most inspiring artists, including its new Music Director, Vasily Petrenko, who will be leading the RPO for this STNJ performance. The program includes Four Sea Interludes from Benjamin Britten’s opera, Peter Grimes; Symphonic Dances, Rachmaninoff’s last major composition; and Shostakovich’s Cello Concerto No. 1 in C Minor, Op. 35, performed with cello soloist, Kian Soltani.
