James Feddeck joins the BBC Philharmonic for Rachmaninov's glowing Second Symphony, a work which moves audiences with its warm tunes, vivacious energy and rich textures. Before the interval James Ehnes is the soloist in Barber's Violin Concerto, a piece which moves from melting melody to utter virtuosity. Inspired by F Scott Fitzgerald, Harbison's 'Remembering Gatsby', a characterful foxtrot, kicks off the programme.
