On 24 January 1813 a group of musicians, music dealers and publishers met in London and founded the Philharmonic Society. For two hundred years the Royal Philharmonic Society has created a future for music by commissioning new music and supporting composers and musicians throughout the UK and abroad. In this concert, conductor Tugan Sokhiev's and the Philharmonia celebrate the Royal Philharmonic Society's Bicentenary with three composers closely associated with the Society's life and history.
