Explore colourful soundworlds and celebrate great Hungarian music at the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra's concert with awarding-winning Hungarian soloist Barnabás Kelemen and conductor Anu Tali. The event marks the 100-year anniversary of diplomatic relations between the United Kingdom and Hungary.

Violinist Barnabás Kelemen has conquered the most famous concert halls in the world with his virtuoso technique and dynamic, passionate playing style. Versatile and open-minded, he is an outstanding soloist and chamber musician, as well as an artistic director of festivals and a teacher at renowned institutions. In recent years he has also worked as a conductor. He is a frequent guest of such eminent ensembles as the BBC Symphony Orchestra, the Budapest Festival Orchestra, the Hungarian National Philharmonic Orchestra, the London Symphony Orchestra, the Estonian National Philharmonic Orchestra, the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra, the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra, the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, and Hannover’s NDR Radiophilharmonie, to name but a few.

Anu Tali is one of the most captivating conductors on the international scene today, belonging to a new generation of artists who are constantly striving for fresh and ingenious creativity on the classical stage. Anu Tali appears regularly with orchestras worldwide including the New Japan and Tokyo Philharmonic orchestras, Orchestre National de France, Chamber Orchestra of Europe, Houston Symphony Orchestra, Mozarteumorchester Salzburg, the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestras, the Deutsches Symphonieorchester Berlin, Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks, Konzerthausorchester Berlin and the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen.

The London-based Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO), one of the world's leading symphonic orchestras, was formed by Sir Thomas Beecham in 1946. As it approaches its 75th Anniversary in 2021, its mission to enrich lives through orchestral experiences that are uncompromising in their excellence and inclusive in their appeal, places the RPO at the forefront of music-making in the UK. Performing approximately 200 concerts each season and with a worldwide audience of more than half a million people, the Orchestra embraces a broad repertoire that enables it to reach the most diverse audience of any British symphony orchestra. Whilst artistic integrity remains paramount, the RPO is unafraid to push boundaries and is equally at home recording video game, film and television soundtracks and working with pop stars, as it is performing the great symphonic repertoire.
