SMETANA The Bartered Bride Overture

RACHMANINOV Piano Concerto No.2

SIBELIUS Symphony No.2

Alan Buribayev Conductor
Alexander Romanovsky Piano

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

Smetana’s exhilarating Overture to his first and most enduring comic opera The Bartered Bride sets the scene for Rachmaninov’s dramatic and passionate Second Piano Concerto. With glorious melodies and divine harmonies, it’s no wonder this Concerto is regarded by many as one of the greatest. Recreating these memorable moments is piano virtuoso Alexander Romanovsky, known for his flair and impeccable technique.

One of Sibelius’ most engaging and beautiful compositions, his Symphony No.2 evokes the expansive, glacial landscape of his native Finland. From an anguished slow movement to a finale of furious passion, this piece climaxes in a flourish of exhilarating heroism.
