Conductor Alan Buribayev Piano Alexander Romanovsky SMETANA Bartered Bride Overture RACHMANINOV Piano Concerto No.2 SIBELIUS Symphony No.2

From £18.00

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. 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.
