This evening of music begins with the overture to Wagner’s opera Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg, one of Wagner’s most lyrical and uplifting works. This sunny composition is followed by a performance of Rachmaninov’s romantic Piano Concerto No. 1, played by award-winning Russian pianist Andrei Korobeinikov, made up of weighty piano chords, heart-wrenching tunes and sumptuous orchestral accompaniment.
The orchestra concludes with Brahms’ Symphony No. 4, whose rich orchestral colours and triumphant climax are a fitting finale, described by many as being the most original and powerful movement he ever wrote.
