RACHMANINOV Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor, Op. 18
PROKOFIEV Suite No. 2 from Romeo and Juliet, Op. 64
Tatiana Kolesova piano
Joseph Wolfe conductor
Achingly beautiful and deeply emotive, Rachmaninov’s second, and most popular, piano concerto is the epitome of heartrending romance - just perfect for this special day. Prokofiev’s spectacular suite is inspired by the tragic tale of Shakespeare’s ‘star crossed lovers’. From the feuding Capulet and Montague families to Juliet’s death, this most famous of all love stories is gloriously portrayed in this vivid musical evocation.
