Please note that Alexei Volodin, the advertised pianist, has had to withdraw. The BBC Philharmonic is grateful to Denis Kozhukhin for taking his place at short notice.
Russian maestro Vassily Sinaisky returns to Manchester to direct the BBC Philharmonic in two genuinely majestic works. After piano Denis Kozhukhin tackles Rachmaninov’s demanding but thrilling Third piano concerto, the orchestra heads off on a tour around the galaxy in Holst’s timeless suite.
