The Thursday Night Series

Rachmaninov's Symphony No.2

SHOSTAKOVICH Violin Concerto No.2 (c.30 mins)

RACHMANINOV Symphony No.2 (c. 60 mins)

Elina Vähälä: Violin

Hannu Lintu: Conductor

Rachmaninov’s music is rarely more heartfelt or so fervently passionate as it is in the Second Symphony. Its romantic headiness is complemented by a thundering, dynamic energy, and we’re thrilled to have Hannu Lintu at the helm for this popular show-stopper. Before then, Lintu’s fellow Finn, the superb Elina Vähälä, joins us for Shostakovich’s Second Violin Concerto. It’s the perfect contrast to Rachmaninov’s wild abandon: a hushed, introverted concerto where the violin sings in long shimmering threads of sound, like a beacon of light leading us through the dark. A mesmerising work, premiered in 1967, it holds all the sorrows, questions, and insights of a lifetime.
