Could Rachmaninov’s Second be 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 amid two very different musical landscapes. Carlijn Metselaar evokes a classic of Scottish literature, while Shostakovich’s First Cello Concerto is a dark, edgy Cold War thriller, performed today by the RSNO’s own Aleksei Kiseliov.

Supported by the Ambache Charitable Trust, which raises the profile of music by women. RSNO Composers’ Hub 2019:20 was supported by RSNO New Works Patron, Susie Thomson.
