    Rachmaninov  Symphony No. 2

    Approximate running time
    1st part: 30mn - Intermission: 20mn - 2nd part: 50mn

    For the first of their two traditional annual performances, the St Petersburg Orchestra and its conductor Yuri Temirkanov propose an evening dedicated to Romanticism with Schumann and Rachmaninov. Attention has often been drawn to the lyrical scope and chromatic richness of Schumann’s only piano concerto, and this explains its popularity as one of the major works of the Romantic concert repertoire. The dialogue between piano and orchestra is particularly dazzling and is equally demanding for both soloist and orchestral players. The musical maturity of young pianist Beatrice Rana will find an ideal vehicle to express itself here. After the traumatic failure of his first symphony creation, Rachmaninov signed a second symphony in Dresden in a spirit and emblem of a balance finally recovered. The latter is carried by a new breath, rich orchestration often irresistible and an architecture that is the most ambitious of his 3 symphonies finally composed.
