Performers and Cast

Alexander Malofeev
Kirill Karabits

The concert begins with a short piece by the young British composer Carmen Ho. Rachmaninov’s Second Piano Concerto was a breakthrough piece after years of creative block. Its passionate and lyrical character has deservedly made it a favourite amongst his works.

Rimsky-Korsakov hesitated as to whether to call Antar a suite or a symphony, but whatever it’s an enjoyable and striking work. Based on an oriental legend about the adventures of chivalrous Prince Antar, the composer’s flair for magical orchestration and oriental colour is heard to the full in this precursor to his better-known Scheharazade.

Join us for a free pre-concert talk with Kirill Karabits, the conductor, and Carmen Ho, composer of one of the pieces in the programme, in discussion with Heather Duncan, BSO Head of Concerts and Artistic Planning.
