Members of the orchestra are not only among the UK’s finest soloists and chamber musicians, but also among the UK’s finest interpreters of new music. The Magnum Opus scheme has been designed to allow three composers to develop their writing careers, giving them opportunities to engage with professional musicians and develop a year-long relationship with the orchestra.

This event is the culmination of the 2021–22 scheme and showcases the composers’ final commissions, a concerto for a solo instrument of their choice and small ensemble, developed with the support of Programme Directors Dobrinka Tabakova and Joe Cutler.

"Stunning" Classic FM

The brilliant piano music of the great Frederic Chopin has never been out of fashion since it first burst onto the international scene in the early 19th century. This music wasn’t intended for the great concert halls of today, but for the intimate setting of Parisian and London Salons of the aristocracy. This was the setting where Chopin felt most at ease and improvised many of his works for the first time.
