Rachmaninov, Prokofiev and Shostakovich

Wednesday 30 October 2024, 7.30pm
Cadogan Hall

Shostakovich Festive Overture
Prokofiev Violin Concerto No.2
Rachmaninov Symphony No.3

Robert Trevino Conductor
Johan Dalene Violin (RPO Artist-in-Residence, 2024–25)

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

Trumpets ring out as Shostakovich prepares to cut loose and party. Sergei Prokofiev meets a French violinist and writes a concerto with a Spanish sizzle: music that sings, dances and tingles in the ear. And, exiled from Russia, Sergei Rachmaninov discovers a glittering world of fast cars and big bands – and pours it all into a symphony that still, somehow, yearns and aches for a homeland he would never see again. All music tells a story and tonight, guest conductor Robert Trevino recreates a world of revolution, exile and burning emotions: three very different but equally colourful 20th-century Russian masterpieces, striking sparks off each other. RPO Artist-in-Residence Johan Dalene takes the spotlight in Prokofiev’s vibrant Violin Concerto No.2, the perfect showcase for Gramophone’s 2022 Young Artist of the Year.
