Kirill Karabits conducts the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra in an evening of richly powerful music. The concert opens with Brahms's Tragic overture, and David Fray joins them for a performance of Beethoven's dramatic and intense Third Piano Concerto. Rachaminov's Choral Symphony 'The Bells' is a hugely dramatic and emotionally charged work, setting words by Edgar Allen Poe; the imitation of the sound of bells throughout are both joyful and poignant, setting the scene for the side range of expression in this work.
