WAGNER The Flying Dutchman Overture
RACHMANINOV Piano Concerto No.3
MUSSORGSKY Pictures at an Exhibition
Alan Buribayev Conductor
Natasha Paremski Piano
Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
The storm-tossed Overture that opens tonight’s concert raises the curtain on one of Wagner’s most searingly dramatic creations from a composer described either as a ‘megalomaniac’ or ‘the Master’ whose revolutionary style took the world by storm.
Performing Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No.3 will be the outstanding pianist and fan-favourite Natasha Paremski. Throughout its forty-odd minutes, Rachmaninov maintains an extraordinary degree of melodic and structural spontaneity, fully reflecting the blistering speed at which the work was composed. Having created fully visualised sound-pictures, Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition will have audiences imagining strolling through a gallery, with each picture telling its own story.
