Interpreting Shakespeare’s timeless tale of two star-crossed lovers, Tchaikovsky’s orchestral fantasy conjures an abundance of memorable music. A dramatic musical expression of the greatest love story of all time.

The powerful whirl of the timpani which leads us from silence to fiery music in Grieg’s Piano Concerto is one of the most effective and famous musical openings in the classical repertoire. Nikolai Lugansky lends his extraordinary depth and versatility to a work with a glowing heart packed with memorable melodies.

Rachmaninov’s Symphony No 1 is full of thickly scored strings, sumptuous melodies, and huge drama alongside sheer serenity. An ambitious and dramatic symphony which is now rightfully recognised as a great triumph.
