Louis Gottschalk Symphony No.1, A Night in the Tropics
Claudia Montero Vientos del Sur (Winds of the South): Concerto for Piano Accordion and Orchestra (world premiere)
Rimsky-Korsakov Shéhérazade
Vasily Petrenko conductor
Ksenija Sidorova accordion

Hold tight: it’s not every concert that starts with a samba and ends with a shipwreck! But when Louis Gottschalk wrote his First Symphony in 1857, he gave its finale an unmistakably Latin shimmy and the first ever orchestral samba. Far away in Russia, meanwhile, Rimsky-Korsakov dreamt of the Arabian Nights – and his sumptuous musical fairytale Shéhérazade never gets any less thrilling. In between – well, let’s just say that if you heard the phenomenal Ksenija Sidorova at our 2016 Christmas concerts, the opportunity to hear her in the dance rhythms of this brand new concerto by Argentinean composer Claudia Montero will be pretty much unmissable.

£15, £21, £27, £35, £45

Map & Directions

Road Directions

If you are coming to Liverpool on the M62, finding Liverpool Philharmonic is straightforward. Continue along the motorway until its end and then follow the signs for the city centre, cathedrals and universities (about 3 miles). Turn left at the Metropolitan Cathedral and head past the Everyman Theatre along Hope Street. If lost, use this maxim: find one cathedral, head for the other. Liverpool Philharmonic is halfway between the two.

Public Transport Directions

Liverpool Philharmonic is a 10 minute walk from both Lime Street Station and Central Station.
