Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No. 1
Dvořák Symphony No. 8 in G (Op. 88)
Rachmaninov’s gripping First Concerto was written while he was still a student at the Moscow Conservatory – no wonder Tchaikovsky considered him Russia’s greatest rising talent. Composed with amazing fluency in just a month, Dvorak submitted his enchanting Eighth Symphony to Cambridge University as a ‘thank-you’ for an honorary doctorate.
