  2. Rhapsody on a theme of Paganini Op 43 - Sergey Rachmaninov
  3. Symphony No 5 in E minor Op 64 - Pyotr Tchaikovsky

Led by conductor Jessica Cottis, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra presents a sparkling evening of Russian gems. The concert opens with the Overture to Borodin’s much-loved opera Prince Igor, followed by a journey of discovery with Rachmaninov's Rhapsody on a theme of Paganini; a piece that infuses rich romantic harmonies, plainchant melodies and dynamic rhythms, this work is regarded as one of the Romantic period’s greatest works. What began as one of Tchaikovsky’s most difficult compositions subsequently became one of his most well-known, as the concert concludes with his magnificent masterpiece, Symphony No 5.

Free: pre-concert talk at 6:30pm with conductor Jennifer Cottis and Venue Manager David Mansfield at Wycombe Swan
