A whole evening devoted to the musical genius of Sergei Rachmaninov.
His First Piano Concerto is filled with youthful bravura and virtuoso passages, but also a very characteristic romanticism.

Years later, Rachmaninov started work on his third and final symphony: the loss of his homeland echoes through the rich, melancholy music – but so does the jazzy and optimistic America. A marvellous work that more than deserves its place in concert halls.
