Borodin Overture, Prince Igor

Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 1

--interval--

Rachmaninov Symphony No. 1

Vladimir Ashkenazy’s exploration of Rachmaninov’s orchestral works culminates with the composer’s First Symphony, a piece overflowing with ideas, unified by an ever-evolving motif shaped by the Dies Irae of Gregorian chant, a stamp that would appear again and again in Rachmaninov’s works. Alongside, the sweeping lyricism of Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto is performed by rising-star pianist Alice Sara Ott.
