Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No. 2

Dynamic conductor Jakub Hrůša makes a welcome return to perform two Czech works of distinction: Smetana’s Overture to The Bartered Bride – a work that heralded the birth of Czech opera; and Dvořák’s mighty Seventh Symphony, a work often described as the composer’s greatest. Daniil Trifonov concludes his Rachmaninov Cycle with the Second Piano Concerto, one of the most popular works of all time.
