Daniele Rustioni

Francesca Dego, violin

For this all-Russian programme, Daniele Rustioni, one of the most compelling conductors of his generation, is joined by Francesca Dego for Tchaikovsky’s perennially popular Violin Concerto. It is rich both in melody and finely-crafted virtuoso writing and culminates in a thrilling Cossack dance. After the Bolshevik Revolution in 1917, Rachmaninov left Russia, never to return. His Third Symphony is a great work of exile, notable for its profusion of melodies, aching nostalgia and technical brilliance. This enticing concert opens with Glinka’s thrilling and breathtakingly fast overture to his opera Ruslan and Ludmilla.
