GLINKA Ruslan and Lyudmila Overture 

RACHMANINOV Piano Concerto No.2 

BEETHOVEN Symphony No.5

Alexander Shelley Conductor
Alessio Bax Piano

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra


With glorious melodies, extensive lyricism and divine harmonies, it’s no wonder Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No.2 is known as the greatest, and recreating these memorable moments is the young virtuoso Alessio Bax. A dazzling curtain-raiser and another uniquely Russian masterpiece, Glinka’s whirlwind Overture to Ruslan and Lyudmila has an exclusive combination of earthly exuberance and heroic feeling. Alexander Shelley, a remarkable young conductor, leads the Orchestra through this concert full of energy and splendour, ending with Beethoven’s legendary Fifth Symphony that changed the face of music forever with its famous opening four-note motif.
