War & peace

Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra

A programme flled with orchestral beauty, where Rachmaninoff's Third pianoconcerto fights right in between.

Immersed in the salutary tranquility of the Ivanovka estate, Rachmaninoff wrote his Third Piano Concerto during the summer of 1909. A masterpiece from a paradise not yet lost: not long after, war broke out in Europe, and in music. End of an era: even in the brilliance of Ravel's La valse and the grandeur of Hindemith's Mathis der Maler, you can hear that the world would never be the same again.
