Rachmaninoff: Inside Out

Rebirth and renewal

7:30 PM, ​ Royal Festival Hall, London

Rachmaninoff Three Russian Songs
Rachmaninoff Spring
Enescu Symphony No. 3*

Vladimir Jurowski conductor
Andrei Bondarenko baritone
London Philharmonic Choir
Trinity Boys Choir
London Philharmonic Orchestra

Nikolay Nekrasov’s poem The Verdant Noise told of a jealous husband intent on murdering his unfaithful wife, only to be stopped in his tracks by the onset of spring. The idea of rebirth, renewal and the fresh blossoming of life swerved the murderous husband and inspired Rachmaninoff to create his first large-scale choral work – his cantata Spring – where choral fervour and orchestral glistening make for some of the composer’s most affecting and descriptive music. After it, Vladimir Jurowski conducts Romanian George Enescu’s emotionally intense Third Symphony – a brooding, heroic and triumphant work for huge symphony orchestra and wordless chorus written at the height of the First World War.

In co-operation with the Serge Rachmaninoff Foundation.

* Supported by the Romanian Cultural Institute.
