RSNO Rachmaninov Symphony No2

7:30pm, Friday 22 May 2020

Thomas Søndergård               Conductor
Aleksei Kiseliov                       Cello

Britten                                      Passacaglia from Peter Grimes
Shostakovich                           Cello Concerto No1
Rachmaninov                          Symphony No2

Is Rachmaninov’s Second the most romantic symphony ever written? With its vast, storm-swept vistas, endless melodies and rapturous love-song of a slow movement, it’s definitely a contender. Thomas Søndergård conducts it with unbridled emotion – the climax of a concert that begins with Shostakovich and Britten at their darkest. Britten’s windswept Passacaglia sets a powerful mood before the RSNO’s own Aleksei Kiseliov explores the tense, action-packed world of Shostakovich’s gripping First Cello Concerto.
