  1. Overture, from Ruslan and Ludmilla - Mikhail Glinka
  2. Concerto for piano and orchestra No 2 in C minor Op 18 - Sergey Rachmaninoff
  3. Má vlast - Bedrich Smetana
    • Vyšehrad
    • Vltava
    • Šárka
    • From Bohemia's fields and groves

Má Vlast translates as ‘My Homeland’, but when Bedrich Smetana wrote his symphonic tribute to Czech history and culture, he didn’t only create a hymn to a great nation: he stretched the very limits of what orchestral music could express. Our guest conductor Nikolaj Szeps-Znaider understands that: he’s a master at drawing grand emotions and rich colours from a full orchestra. So he’s the ideal partner for a pianist as masterly as Kirill Gerstein, in Rachmaninoff’s passionate (and hugely popular) Second Piano Concerto – and just the man to put a rocket under Glinka’s little firecracker of an overture.
