LANDMARKS OF EMOTION
ABOUT THE PROGRAMME

TWO MESMERIC LANDMARKS OF THE ORCHESTRAL REPERTOIRE ELOQUENTLY ILLUSTRATE THE ENORMOUS VARIETY AND VITALITY OF THE FORM.

Dvorák's glorious late-19th-century Concerto is a haunting blend of American-Negro folk tunes and thrilling, heart-on-sleeve writing for the cello (played by the remarkable, always unmissable, Alban Gerhardt).

Completed in 1936, Rachmaninov's Third Symphony is a work of large emotions underpinned by the brittle poignancy of plain-chant and expressed in music that moves from brooding melancholia to searing lyricism to thrilling defiance with irresistible energy.
