French Connections

We welcome the return of a familiar friend of the SSO: the distinguished British pianist Stephen Hough in Saint-Saëns’s picturesque Egyptian Piano Concerto.This all-French programme directed by SSO Principal Guest Conductor Andrew Litton also features a rare opportunity to hear one of the finest examples of symphonic tradition from the hands of the French - the shimmering majesty of César Franck’s only Symphony.

The most perfect piano playing conceivable. - The Guardian on Stephen Hough

Attend This Concert

To hear one of Britain's favourite piano personalities. Franck's Symphony is also fascinating: a traditionally Germanic form written "in French".
