Next ConcertSunday 21st November 2021 at 7:30pm
Rachmaninoff Festival:Rachmaninoff: Vocalise, opus 34
Rachmaninoff: Piano Concerto No 4 in G minor, opus 40
soloist: Adam Davies
Rachmaninoff: Symphony No 2 in E minor, opus 27
This concert marks the culmination of our complete cycle of Rachmaninoff’s works for piano and orchestra, with the hugely demanding fourth concerto, which our soloist Adam Davies - making his first appearance with us - is fully equipped to meet. If this concerto has been unjustly neglected, the Second Symphony is the best loved of Rachmaninoff’s three works in this genre, being brim full of luscious melody from start to finish. It is, arguably, THE most romantic of any of the Russian Romantic symphonic works, and will be given the full treatment by the ninety odd musicians who comprise Sinfonia!
TICKETS £15.00 (concessions: £13.00; Student: £8.00; accompanied schoolchildren: free) will be available shortly from the Usher Hall Box Office, from Members of the Orchestra, and at the door (cash or card).
