Eastbourne residency: Shostakovich, Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff

Including Rachmaninoff's emotionally charged Symphony No. 2

3:00 PM, ​ Congress Theatre, Eastbourne

Shostakovich Festive Overture
Tchaikovsky Variations on a Rococo theme
Rachmaninoff Symphony No. 2

Robert Trevino conductor
Harriet Krijgh cello

In 1906, Rachmaninoff and his family left a politically turbulent Russia behind and escaped to Dresden. Here the composer relaxed, attended concerts and experienced one of the most productive periods of his life. Among its first fruits was his Second Symphony, a work that unlocked a new emotional power within Rachmaninoff and saw him master both the orchestra and the symphonic form with flowing themes, vital rhythms and sumptuous textures. Robert Trevino conducts it here after Tchaikovsky's ultra-delicate Rococo Variations for cello and orchestra, performed by ECHO Rising Star Harriet Krijgh, and an overture by Shostakovich that's full of fun and festivity.
