Vladimir Jurowski will be conducting the London Philharmonic Orchestra and viola player Kim Kashkashian at the Royal Festival Hall.

They will be performing a selection of classical works by Giya Kancheli, Bohuslav Martinu and Ralph Vaughan Williams.

Kancheli -- Mourned by the wind
Martinu -- Memorial to Lidice
Vaughan Williams -- Symphony No.9 in E minor

Russian conductor Vladimir Jurowski has held many prestigious roles, including spots with the Russian National Orchestra, Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, and the Glyndebourne Festival Opera. The last few years have seen him work closely with the London Philharmonic.

The London Philharmonic Orchestra was founded by Sir Thomas Beecham, and has been based at London’s Royal Festival Hall ever since its opening in 1951. It is also the resident symphony orchestra of the Glyndebourne Festival Opera.
