Rachmaninoff’s Hollywood

London Philharmonic Orchestra: 2017/18 Season

London Philharmonic Orchestra

Stravinsky Jeu de cartes
Tchaikovsky Rococo Variations
Rachmaninoff Symphony No. 3*

John Storgårds conductor
Stéphane Tétreault cello

Exiled from Russia, Rachmaninoff and Stravinsky both travelled Europe and America before ending up as unlikely neighbours in Hollywood.The chrome-plated dazzle of Rachmaninoff’s gorgeous Third Symphony can’t hide its deep, songful sense of loss; and Stravinsky’s Jeu de cartes is playing for higher (and scarier) stakes than you might at first realise from this brilliant, razor-sharp music. In between, guest conductor John Storgårds teams up with the young Canadian cellist Stéphane Tétreault in Tchaikovsky’s delightful Rococo Variations: an affectionate musical salute to a gentler age, with a big heart and a delicious sense of humour.

*In co-operation with the Serge Rachmaninoff Foundation.
