Chloë Hanslip violin
Dmitry Vasiliev

The twenty-year-old Rachmaninov’s expressive tone poem The Rock won the enthusiastic admiration of Tchaikovsky and already shows many of his qualities as a composer. Glazunov’s passionately lyrical and undeservedly overlooked Violin Concerto dates from 1904, a period when the composer was at the height of his creative powers. Tchaikovsky’s powerful Fourth Symphony is one of his most successful large-scale works. The opening fanfare, said to represent the power of fate, is followed by a lyrical slow movement and pizzicato scherzo. In the finale, the fanfare returns to striking effect as the work drives to its headlong conclusion.

Pre-concert talk, 6.30pm | The Forge
