Is Rachmaninov’s Second the most romantic symphony ever written? With its vast, stormswept vistas, endless melodies and rapturous love-song of a slow movement, it’s certainly a contender, and Andris Nelsons conducts it with unbridled emotion. First, though, he rediscovers the spirited Piano Concerto by Antonín Dvorák – with one of the world’s finest living pianists as his partner. http://www.CBSO.co.uk

    I believe the Dvorak Encore was “Songs my mother taught me”. The concert was first rate with Andris Nelsons, Stephen Hough and the CBSO all in top form. Well done!
    Kind regards, Derek

      Hi Derek,
      Thank you, yes, was slow to add that after someone mentioned it on Twitter! No encore for the matinee though, sadly. Definitely another very memorable concert, everyone playing their hearts out – both days!
