The concert opens with Dvořák’s tale of supernatural tragedy The Water Goblin, one of the astonishing series of tone poems he wrote after returning from America.
We are joined by the dazzling Ke Ma for Bartók’s Third Piano Concerto. Written in America in the last year of his life, it is a virtuoso showpiece and a nostalgic memory of the Hungary he would never see again.
Rachmaninov’s mighty Second Symphony, the core of Richmond Orchestra’s Spring Concert, is perhaps the apotheosis of the Romantic movement in music. Darkly passionate and rich in soaring melody, it has been a favourite of audiences and players alike since its première in 1907.
