BRITTEN Passacaglia from Peter Grimes
SHOSTAKOVICH Cello Concerto No1
RACHMANINOV Symphony No2
THOMAS SØNDERGÅRD Conductor
ALEKSEI KISELIOV Cello
Is Rachmaninov’s Second the most romantic symphony ever written? With its vast, storm-swept vistas, endless melodies and rapturous love-song of a slow movement, it’s definitely a contender. Thomas Søndergård conducts it with unbridled emotion – the climax of a concert that begins with Shostakovich and Britten at their darkest. Britten’s windswept Passacaglia sets a powerful mood before the RSNO’s own Aleksei Kiseliov explores the tense, action-packed world of Shostakovich’s gripping First Cello Concerto.
“The sure ticket among orchestral performances these days in Scotland is anything involving Thomas Søndergård and the RSNO.”
