Sibelius Valse Triste*
Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No. 2
Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 6 (Pathétique)
Joshua Weilerstein conductor
Mark Bebbington piano
Pathétique means ‘full of emotion’. And from the tragic depths of its opening to its final, heartbreaking moments, every note of Tchaikovsky’s Sixth Symphony is drenched in feeling. This is Russian music at its most honest, its most romantic, and its most ravishingly tuneful – and it’s quite simply unforgettable.
Conductor Joshua Weilerstein brings limitless youthful energy, and teams up with British pianist Mark Bebbington to explore the dark passions of Rachmaninoff’s best-loved piano concerto.
