Rimsky-Korsakov’s fiery Capriccio Espagnol is a brilliant fifteen minutes of passionate music with
explosive percussion. Rachmaninov’s immensely popular Rhapsody is filled with strong Romantic sweeps. A set of 24 fiendishly difficult variations for piano and orchestra – played here by Sergei Redkin, bronze medal winner at the XV International Tchaikovsky competition (2015).

Tchaikovsky’s greatest symphony, possibly his greatest work, the ‘Pathétique’ (Passionate) is one of the defining sounds of the Romantic period. The composer proclaimed it his most sincere composition, one which would strike terror into
the souls of listeners.

From Russia’s third most populous city, the Russian Philharmonic of Novosibirsk is led by Thomas Sanderling. The orchestra – considered one of the finest in all Russia – presents a programme of monumental Russian music.
