Led by conductor Jessica Cottis, the RPO performs a sparkling programme of Russian gems, including the Overture to Borodin’s opera Prince Igor.

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

What began as one of Tchaikovsky’s most difficult compositions subsequently became one of his most well-known, as the concert concludes with his magnificent masterpiece, Symphony No 5.
