Nelson Goerner (piano)
BBC National Orchestra of Wales
Eivind Gullberg Jensen (conductor)
A programme of twentieth-century Russian music featuring one of Rachmaninov's most dearly-loved works, his Second Symphony, and Prokofiev's bittersweet Piano Concerto No.3.
Prokofiev's Third Piano Concerto, written during the composer's exile on the French Channel coast at the beginning of the 1920s, is full of wit and cosmopolitan glamour. Rachmaninov poured his most personal feelings into his monumental Second Symphony; the result is an extraordinary, inexhaustible stream of melody. Norwegian conductor Eivind Gullberg Jensen makes his debut with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales.
