Philharmonia Orchestra: Rachmaninov's Third Piano Concerto + More

Classical music the epically Russian way

Paavo Järvi conducts the Philharmonia Orchestra through a fascinating programme of Russian masterworks. Today, these works are free of censorship, but that wasn't always the case. Shostakovich was backed into a corner when he penned his Fifth as an artist's respond to just criticism; while Rachmaninov's music was outlawed when he was declared an enemy of Russia. The programme: - Mikhail Glinka: Overture, Ruslan and Ludmilla - Sergei Rachmaninov: Piano Concerto No 3 - interval - Dmitri Shostakovich: Symphony No 5 Seating allocated on arrival. Latecomers will only be admitted after the interval.
