BSO Concert Hall 2 hours


Rachmaninov’s Second Symphony is his largest work for orchestra. Full of themes which slowly emerge, reappear and reach intense climaxes, it is a truly luscious piece, shown best in the glorious adagio. Its unqualified success vindicated Rachmaninov’s compositional powers, drawing upon his talent for creating ardent, emotionally compelling melodies. Filled with mesmerising melodies, passionate musical outbursts and lovingly quiet interludes it remains an audience favourite.

Bruch’s concerto was his first major work, yet it is one of his best – a rich, wonderfully lyrical expanse of music offering melodies tailor-made for the violin and explosive technical fireworks in equal measure. The orchestral writing, too, fully complements the solo part with its richness and drama. The Magic Flute is one of Mozart’s most enduring and endearing operas. The overture, after a sombre opening of weighty trombone chords, skips off in a gleeful, fugal allegro, notable for Mozart’s brilliant use of counterpoint and dynamic contrasts.
