Glinka: Ruslan & Ludmilla

Rachmaninov: Rhapsody on a Theme by Paganini (soloist Christopher Weston, piano)

Moussorgsky: Pictures at an Exhibition

Andrew Lowen conductor

Our final concert of the year carries forward the focus of the Spring Concert on music from the great Russian Romantic composers, beginning  with the overture from Glinka’s second opera, a rumbustious piece said to have been inspired by the clatter of cutlery at a court wedding! We are delighted to welcome back Christopher Weston to play Rachmaninov’s Rhapsody on a Theme by Paganini, a concertante work for solo piano and orchestra comprising 24 variations on the last of Paganini’s Caprices for solo violin. The concluding work will be Moussorgsky’s Picture at an Exhibition, inspired by the paintings of his friend Victor Hartmann.
