All Ages



Conductor: Rumon Gamba
Piano Kathryn Stott

- Kalinnikov Serenade for Strings
- Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No.4
- Tchaikovsky Symphony No.4

A night of Russian passion. In fact ‘passion’ is precisely the word for Tchaikovsky’s hyper-emotional Fourth Symphony and indeed for Tchaikovsky himself. Shattering, doom-laden fanfares herald music of a soul in torment, but a hard-won affirmation of life ultimately triumphs.

Rachmaninov’s mighty Fourth Piano Concerto calls for a soloist with an ardent heart and fingers of steel and the superb British pianist Kathryn Stott is such a musician.

To begin the concert, a little-known gem: the charming Serenade by Vassily Kalinnikov. A colleague of both Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninov, his promise was cut short by his early death.

Note: This concert is on a Wednesday.
