Concert information

“Free but happy” is the motto that Brahms gave to his Third Symphony, and it begins with all the exhilaration of a summer downpour. What comes next is a musical exploration of German Romanticism at its most poetic, a world of rolling clouds, tender lullabies, and – at the end – radiant sunsets. It’s a magnificent finish to a concert that‘s all about colour: and make no mistake, Vadym Kholodenko will bring out every glittering facet of Rachmaninov’s hugely popular 'Rhapsody'. Just as conductor Nicholas Carter will find every scintilla of wit in a brilliant but rarely-heard symphony by the composer Brahms loved above all others: Joseph Haydn.

The concert will be recorded for future broadcast on BBC Radio 3.
