Conductor: Philip Hesketh
Piano: Viv McLean
Rachmaninov’s titanic Third Piano Concerto is seen by pianists as one of their greatest challenges. However, its mighty technical demands are more than matched by the warmth and richness of its glorious melodies.
The brilliant Fourth Symphony by Tchaikovsky gives us a spectral waltz, a country song, a pizzicato polka, a recurring and terrifying ‘Fate’ motive, and perhaps the most exciting ending in all symphonic music.
