Lang Lang, Repin and Maisky at the Royal Festival Hall
Live from the Royal Festival Hall in London
Presented by Andrew McGregor
A rare chance to hear Chinese virtuoso Lang Lang performing chamber music with two other big stars, violinst Vadim Repin and cellist Mischa Maisky. The concert opens with the single-movement Trio élégiaque No 1 by Rachmaninov, which he wrote when he was only 19. Then, Mendelssohn's Trio No. 1 in D minor, one of the composer's best loved chamber masterworks, and after the break, Tchaikovsky's Trio in A minor, a piece composed 'In memory of a great artist', the composer's mentor and friend Nikolai Rubinstein.
