Rachmaninov - Piano Concerto No.3
Shostakovich - Symphony No.5

Conductor
Sir Mark Elder

Featuring:
Pavel Kolesnikov, piano

Laden with the composer’s characteristic ardent, late-Romantic lyricism, Rachmaninov’s Third Piano Concerto is famed for being fiendishly virtuosic. Performed here by the London-based Siberian pianist, Pavel Kolesnikov, an artist praised for his daring originality. Shostakovich’s best-known symphony, his Fifth, is an emotional rollercoaster penned under the threat of communist oppression. The work re-established the composer’s reputation and its 1937 premiere was reportedly met with a 30-minute standing ovation. As the current world situation reflects equally turbulent events, this will certainly be a timely and relevant performance.
