RSNO Rachmaninov Second Symphony

7:30pm, Friday 17 February 2017

No availability

Elim Chan makes a triumphant return to the RSNO, two weeks after her debut, to conduct possibly the most romantic symphony ever written – Rachmaninov's Second, alongside Tchaikovsky's gloriously tuneful Overture to Shakespeare's star-crossed lovers. Ingrid Fliter displays her signature sparkle in Beethoven's brightest piano concerto.

Please note, this concert was originally billed as Järvi's 80th Birthday, with the RSNO's Conductor Laureate Neeme Järvi, who has unfortunately had to withdraw for personal reasons. The above programme is an alteration to the one originally advertised, with Rachmaninov’s Symphony No2 replacing Tchaikovsky’s Manfred Symphony and Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture in place of the composer’s Hamlet Fantasy Overture.

6:45pm Pre Concert Talk: Michael Tumelty
