Glinka Overture, Ruslan and Ludmilla
Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No 2 in F minor
Tchaikovsky Symphony No 4 in F minor
Dmitri Vasiliev, conductor
Freddy Kempf, piano
Three romantic classics make up the programme. Rachmaninov's much loved second piano concerto is at the core of the film Brief Encounter and Tcahikovsky's fourth symphony never fails to scintillate with its spectacular brass fanfares and brilliant string writing. Glinka's sparkling Overture sets off the evening in energetic style.
