Rachmaninov 150th Anniversary
19th November 2023, 15:00
This sparkling programme features two of the most brilliant composers of the late 19th/early 20th centuries and, arguably, their greatest works. Soloist Alexandra Stevenson will sing Four Last Songs, Strauss’s swansong of sublime beauty and power. Rachmaninov’s Vocalise, the last of his 14 songs, uses no words but one vowel of the singer’s choosing.
Strauss’s Don Juan opens the concert with all the drama and energy one would expect from the title and Strauss in unbridled youth. Symphonic Dances by Rachmaninov, his final and perhaps greatest work, closes this unforgettable afternoon of music.
