THE Philharmonia Orchestra returns to Bristol on Tuesday with the legendary pianist and conductor Vladimir Ashkenazy.

Through his remarkable career, Ashkenazy has established himself as one of the great names of classical music.

For five decades he has performed and recorded with the world’s very best ensembles, both as a pianist and conductor, earning a formidable reputation as one of the greatest musical minds alive today.

The great maestro returns to Bristol at the Colston Hall.

He will be joined by the internationally-acclaimed Japanese pianist, Nobuyuki Tsujii, who performs Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 1.

Tsujii was born blind, and has learned his repertoire by ear – a fact that consistently amazes audiences around the world.

The concert’s featured piece will be Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique.

Tickets, priced £1-31, are available on 0117 9223686 or via
