QSO welcomes the leading international Liszt specialist of our time, Leslie Howard, making a rare return to his home country to perform live in concert.

Hear Liszt’s Piano Concerto No.2, one of the most beautiful concertos of all time alongside Totentanz - often referred to as the 'Dance of Death'. This stellar evening, under the baton of QSO Conductor Laureate Johannes Fritzsch, culminates with Strauss’ epic tone-poem Ein Heldenleben, a monumental work featuring a vast strings section that demands your attention!
