The rich orchestration, the expressive range, those stirring, swelling chords in the Nimrod movement raise every goosebump.

There are few moments like it.

Rachmaninov’s Third Piano Concerto fuses the best elements of his music, from lyrical melodies to ferocious and powerful passages that radiate brilliant musical colour. Superstar Japanese pianist Nobuyuki Tsujii performs Rachmaninov’s most famous concerto with supreme virtuosity, revealing a beautiful and wistful world.

Haydn’s London Symphony is considered by many to be the crowning achievement of his symphonic legacy. His last symphony, this is a triumphant curtain call for one of the greatest composers of the 18th century and one of the most influential of all time.
