Prokofiev and Rachmaninoff

Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra

Magical sounds from the pen of three Russian composers: an ode to the power of the imagination.

Fairytale castles and sunny gardens: a dream world opens up at the end of Gubaidulina’s Fairytale Poem. That mood continues in Prokofiev’s First Violin Concerto with a melody that takes us to increasingly dizzying heights, the start of a breathtaking adventure. This concert programme ends with an ode to the power of the imagination: Rachmaninoff’s magical Second Symphony.

Glorious… crackling fireworks and rich poetic expressiveness
