BORODIN Prince Igor Overture

RACHMANINOV Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini


Pablo Gonzalez* Conductor
Tom Poster Piano

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

The RPO performs a sparkling programme of Russian gems, including the Overture to Borodin’s opera Prince Igor.

Rachmaninov takes you on a journey of discovery with his Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini. Infusing rich romantic harmonies, plainchant melodies and dynamic rhythms, this work is regarded as one of the Romantic period's greatest works.

What began as one of Tchaikovsky’s most difficult compositions subsequently became one of his most well-known, as the concert concludes with his magnificent masterpiece, Symphony No.5.

*Jessica Cottis who had previously been advertised as the guest conductor has withdrawn from this concert due to illness, we are grateful to Pablo Gonzalez for agreeing to step in at short notice.
