Alexander Shelley conducts Rachmaninov | Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

Friday, April 26, 2019 - 19:10

Rachmaninov takes you on a journey of discovery with his Rhapsody on a theme by Paganini. Infusing rich romantic harmonies, plainchant melodies and dynamic rhythms, this gem is regarded as one of the Romantic period's greatest works.

Wagner’s Tannhäuser Overture provides a dramatic and rich opening before Tchaikovsky’s epic Symphony No 4 brings the concert to a close, with its powerful and wild journey from darkness to light.

Free: pre-concert talk at 6:30pm with conductor Alexander Shelley
