Prom 43: Rachmaninov, Stravinsky & Tchaikovsky

An all-Russian programme from the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Edward Garner opens with the buzzing energy of Stravinsly’s Scherzo fantastique and end in the cannon-fire of Tchaikovsky’s ‘1812’ Overture. In between come Rachmaninov’s choral symphony The Bells and Stravinsky’s iconoclastic violin concerto, performed here by soloist Baiba Skride.
