Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra of London Christmas Concert

Tchaikovsky and Carols


Chris Petrie
Christmas Carol Fantasia (world premiere)
Mother Goose Suite
Violin Concerto


Remus Azoitei
Chris Petrie

Join the PCOL for its Christmas celebration that can be enjoyed by the whole family! The concert opens with the world premiere of Petrie’s Christmas Carol Fantasia that includes well-known carols from across the world in a new arrangement for orchestra. Ravel’s Mother Goose follows, featuring a collection of colourful miniatures written for different scenes from literature for children, such as Sleeping Beauty, The Fairy Garden and Little Tom Thumb.

The concert closes with Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto; perhaps the grandest violin concerto of them all, featuring the sweeping melodies and hair-raising climaxes that make Tchaikovsky one of the most loved composers of all time. We are ecstatic that Remus Azoitei joins us as soloist; Remus is Professor of Violin at the Royal Academy of Music and has performed internationally as a soloist with many leading orchestras, including the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, Orchestre National de Belgique and Deutsches Kammerorchester.

This Christmas concert is very popular so we recommend that you book tickets early to avoid disappointment!
