Violin Concerto in D major, Op. 35
Symphony No. 2 in E minor, Op. 27
Yuri Zhislin violin
Marios Papadopoulos conductor
‘How fresh, how beautiful it is’ remarked one critic after the first performance of Sergei Rachmaninov’s Symphony No. 2 in 1908. There is a reason this symphony is deemed the composer’s most perfect orchestral creation, as rich textures and sombre harmonies wrap themselves around Rachmaninov’s finely contoured melodies. The music smoulders, flares up and propels itself towards a whirling, spirited climax. Before it, our own Co-Concertmaster Yuri Zhislin is the soloist in Tchaikovsky’s powerful, poetic and unsurpassed violin concerto.
