Vasily Petrenko will be conducting the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra at the Royal Festival Hall, with the Bach Choir, soprano Maija Kovalevska, mezzo-soprano Karen Cargill, tenor Saimir Pirgu and bass Alexander Vinogradov.

They will be performing Giuseppe Verdi's "Requiem".

First established in 1875, the Bach Choir has long been regarded as one of the world’s leading choruses. The choir’s musical director is currently David Hill, who occupies a spot once held by the great English composer Vaughan Williams.

The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO) was founded by Thomas Beecham in 1946. Subsequent principal conductors have included the great André Previn and Vladimir Ashkenazy.
