Rachmaninovs Second.


  • Glinka Ruslan and Ludmila: Overture5′
  • Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 228′
  • Rachmaninov Symphony No. 255′

Think Russian and you think epic. Rachmaninov’s Second Symphony is exactly that – vast, passionate, and overflowing with some of the most romantic melodies Rachmaninov ever wrote. Guest conductor Kazuki Yamada adores Russian music, and he begins with a real little firecracker of an overture. Alongside all that drama, pianist Dejan Lazić’s performance of Beethoven’s joyous Second Concerto will sparkle like a newly-cut diamond.

CBSO+ 31 January, 1pm: CBSO violinist David Gregory and two other CBSO musicians (horn & double bass) delve into Rachmaninov’s romantic Second Symphony.

CBSO+ 1 February, 6.15pm: A piano recital performed by the rising stars of Birmingham Conservatoire.
