Rachmaninov's Third: World's Toughest Piano Piece?

Book tickets
Piano Concerto No. 3
Gabriela Ortiz
Suite from Hominum (UK premiere)
Symphony No. 6
Carlos Miguel Prieto
Boris Giltburg

They call it the “Everest of Piano Concertos”, and no question: Rachmaninov’s huge, passionate Third Piano Concerto is a supreme challenge for any pianist. So we can’t wait to hear it performed by the phenomenal Boris Giltburg (last time he played here, the Liverpool Echo called him “mesmerising”). Conductor Carlos Miguel Prieto, back by popular demand, is equally gripping. So expect some serious energy in a brilliant new work from his native Mexico, and prepare to be astonished by Shostakovich’s remarkable Sixth Symphony: a vodka-fuelled collision of dark emotions and sheer fun.
