Conductor Han-Na Chang, “a diminutive, dynamic firebrand" (The Guardian) with  “An extraordinary sense of fearless adventure” (The Times) comes together with pianist Sunwook Kim for the celebratory closing concert of the 2017-18 Korea-UK Season.

The timeless beauty of Grieg’s Piano Concerto leads 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 2017-18 Korea-UK Season.

General booking opens 8 February 2017 9:30 am
