RACHMANINOV and GLINKA

BBC Proms: Рахманинов и Глинка в исполнении Singapore Symphony Orchestra
 под управлением Lan Shui

Tue 02 September 2014 - 7.30pm Royal Albert Hall, Kensington Gore, London

Continuing the World Orchestras strand this year, the Singapore Symphony Orchestra makes its Proms debut under Music Director Lan Shui, bringing with it the European premiere of Pulitzer Prize-winning Chinese composer Zhou Long's Piano Concerto – a fusion of Western forms and Eastern memories.

The concert opens with the overture to Glinka's fairy-tale opera Ruslan and Lyudmila, which weaves three melodies together with intricate skill.

We end with Rachmaninov's Second Symphony, in which the composer overcame his early artistic doubts to produce an expansive work with a brilliant, vivacious scherzo and one of his very loveliest slow movements.
