Rachmaninov’s second piano concerto occupies a special place in our affections with its divine dialogue between piano and orchestra. Mami Shikimori gave a stunning performance of the Grieg piano concerto in a Sheldonian prom concert for 2013, and we are delighted to welcome her back this year.
Rimsky – Korsakov’s ever popular Scheherazade, inspired by four stories from The Arabian Nights from the Golden Islamic Age, showcases our Oxford Proms Orchestra of leading professional performers conducted by charismatic conductor John Traill.
