Simon Trpceski performs Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No. 3 | London Philharmonic

Friday, February 15, 2013 - 19:30

Rachmaninoff’s finest piano concerto meets his most enduringly popular symphony. The undulating melody of the Third Piano Concerto weaves its way into one of the most heartstopping musical narratives of the 20th century – a lone virtuoso thundering and eulogising against a surging, soaring orchestra. The Second Symphony contains the very best of Rachmaninoff: powered by melody, richly orchestrated, moving from momentary infernal whirlwinds to passionate declarations of love and still reflections of peace and tranquility, it was the piece that gave its composer his symphonic credentials. Heart-on-sleeve music brought to life by the matchless talent of Yannick Nézet-Séguin.

In co-operation with the Serge Rachmaninoff Foundation.
