There are few combinations of sound-worlds so thrilling as piano and orchestra, and never more so when the composer is Rachmaninov.
The ‘Rach 2’ as it’s affectionately known, is an absolute finger-buster, and yet still manages to tug at your heartstrings. You’ll be swept away by the melodies one moment, while the next your jaw will drop at the technical skill required to pull it off. This concerto will be performed by Uzbek pianist Behzod Abduraimov, described by The Independent as ‘the most perfectly accomplished pianist of his generation’.
One of our most talked-about concerts of 2021 was our performance of Brahms’ Symphony No.2. We’ll continue our survey of this orchestral master as renowned conductor Asher Fisch leads the Orchestra through the rich and beautiful world of Brahms’ Symphony No.3.
