Eastbourne residency: Romance and adventure

Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No. 2
Rimsky-Korsakov Scheherazade

Andrew Gourlay conductor
Reinis Zariņš piano
London Philharmonic Orchestra

The makers of Brief Encounter knew what they were doing when they put Rachmaninoff’s Second Piano Concerto on the soundtrack. No composer had a more deeply romantic spirit, or knew how to express it with such opulence and ardour. Critics have called the young Latvian pianist Reinis Zariņš ‘electrifying’: who better to explore the dark passions of this hugely popular Concerto? And then Andrew Gourlay ventures off into the vast, storm-swept landscape of Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade – a true Russian epic, filled with some of the 20th century’s grandest and most glorious melodies. Every performance is an adventure.
