Brilliant and Breathtaking
Rachmaninov doesn’t mess around with his Piano Concerto No.3 in D minor – his melodies draw you in from the very beginning. Your soloist is Nobuyuki Tsujii, a former child prodigy who gave his major Tokyo debut at 12, and has since taken the world by storm, as he presents history’s most challenging music learnt through Braille and ear. Marvel at the depth of expression he pours into every note before our knock-out program continues with Prokofiev’s Symphony No.7. Brazilian conductor Eduardo Strausser will give you safe passage through a daring opening movement; if you can face the foreboding strings, you will be rewarded with sweeping melodies and a gratifying finale. Tchaikovsky’s Waltz from Sleeping Beauty will whirl you home with the perfect coming-of-age dance for anyone who has ever enjoyed a 16th birthday – or perhaps has one on the horizon in 2024?
