Rimsky-Korsakov Capriccio Espagnol

Charismatic conductor Santtu-Matias Rouvali brings the world-class Philharmonia to Manchester for the first time since taking their reins – joined by one of today’s most exciting young pianists.

Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto is a milestone in romantic music, its heroic opening known and loved far beyond the concert hall. It’s played tonight by Frank Dupree, fast making his name as one of the most exciting and versatile soloists working today.

Tchaikovsky opens the concert, followed by music from two members of the so-called Mighty Five school of Russian romantics. First, Alexander Borodin’s masterwork, a compelling homage to the history and heritage of his homeland. And to end, we’re under the Spanish sun for Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s elegant Iberian travelogue.
