Rachmaninov & Tchaikovsky
NB Change of Programme

RACHMANINOV Piano Concerto No 2

Gianandrea Noseda conductor
Khatia Buniatishvili piano
London Symphony Orchestra

‘Where words fail, music speaks’ – Hans Christian Andersen. Nowhere does this ring so true as in these two powerful works.

Urgent, supercharged and violent in places, Tchaikovsky's Fourth Symphony is said to reflect the turmoil the composer found himself in while composing: a disastrous marriage, struggling with his sexuality and severe depression. Yet, despite the gloomy outlook, the symphony proves undoubtedly that Tchaikovsky knew how to fill his works with memorable melodies.

Change of Programme

Rachmaninov's Piano Concerto No 2 will now be performed in this concert, in place of Prokofiev's Piano Concerto No 2. This change is at the request of the soloist, Khatia Buniatishvili.
