Piano Concerto No.3 in D minor, Op.30

The internationally renowned City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra makes a welcome return to the Cheltenham Concert Series. Joined by esteemed conductor Kazuki Yamada and award-winning pianist Hisako Kawamura, the Orchestra performs two giant works from the first decade of the 20th century, powerhouses of late Romanticism still adored by audiences over 100 years later.

All of Sibelius’ symphonies reflect the epic scale and passion of his native Finland, and No.2 is no exception. Rachmaninov’s Third Piano Concerto is by turns lyrical, soaring, fiery and beautiful throughout its three unforgettable movements. This monumental and virtuosic programme is the perfect way to bring our 2015-16 Concert Series to a close.

Russian State Philharmonic

Russian State Philharmonic

Cadogan Hall is delighted to welcome back the enormously popular Russian State Philharmonic with its Music Director Valery Polyansky, recognized today as a leading interpreter of the works of Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky.

Rachmaninov himself said that the third was his personal favourite amongst his piano concertos, requiring breathtaking virtuosity from both soloist and orchestra. Valentina Lisitsa joins them for one of the most difficult and physically demanding works for pianists.

Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 4, written soon after the collapse of his brief and disastrous marriage, is saturated with the idea of fate, or as the composer wrote ‘that fatal force which prevents the impulse to happiness from attaining its goal’. The vigorous finale, incorporating a famous Russian folk song, swings from the dark emotions of the first movement to a more triumphant mood.

Sat 10 Mar

£13–£35 (Students £6.50–£17.50)

Valery Polyansky conducts Tchaikovsky, Suite: Sleeping Beauty; Prokofiev, Violin Concerto No 1 and Tchaikovsky, Symphony No 4, with guest soloist Alexander Sitkovetsky.
