Many thanks to our great orchestra, soloists, supporters, and all who came to our concert on 16th August. It was good to see a full house in the great Sheldonian Theatre and the audience gave us a rapturous reception.

Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No 2 in C minor Op 18

Rimsky - Korsakov  Symphonic Suite Scheherazade Op 35

Mami Shikimori – piano

John Traill – conductor

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.
