Programme Note

For the second all-Russian programme of the season, Daniele Rustioni, one of the most compelling conductors of his generation, is joined by the brilliant Francesca Dego for Tchaikovsky’s perennially popular Violin Concerto. It is rich both in melody and finely-crafted virtuoso writing and culminates in a thrilling Cossack dance!

After the Bolshevik Revolution in 1917, Rachmaninov left his native Russia, never to return. His Third Symphony is a great work of exile, notable for its profusion of melodies, aching nostalgia and technical brilliance. The Hallé opens the concert with Mussorgsky’s atmospheric dawn in 17th century Moscow.
