Concert due to finish at approximately 4:55pm today

Please note change of soloist:

Yevgeny Sudbin, who was to have played Rachmaninov’s Second Piano Concerto, is indisposed.  We are very grateful that at short notice the young Ukrainian-born pianist Vadym Kholodenko - 2013 Gold Medal winner at the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition - will take his place.   The programme remains unchanged.

In music, there’s more than one way to tell a story. Quiet piano chords launch Rachmaninov’s Second Piano Concerto, the perfect symbol for a composer summoning the creative confidence to write the most popular piano concerto of the 20th century. Russian pianist Yevgeny Sudbin has the virtuosity and insight to bring it into the 21st. Rimsky-Korsakov is more forthright: instruments actually become characters in his hugely popular Arabian Nights fantasy – though if anyone can uncover the secrets behind the glitter, it’s Ilan Volkov. And Edmund Finnis? We can’t say yet: we simply know that it’s worth hearing any story that this “compelling” (The Daily Telegraph) young British composer has to tell.

Prelude: 2.00pm (free to ticket holders)
Peter Nelson from the University of Edinburgh discusses the featured works.
