Bringing her captivating touch to one of Mozart’s best-known piano concertos, Yeol Eum Son shows us why she’s in such global demand.

Opening softly, the work grows to unleash a taut and brilliant musical drama – broken only by the gorgeous, slow movement which provides a serene moment where we can feel the sunshine break through.

Of equal theatricality is Rachmaninov’s thrilling Symphonic Dances – a sweeping love letter to his homeland, rumbling with nostalgic nods to Russian church music, fellow artists and his own earlier works.

In his Variations on a Theme by Joseph Haydn, Brahms goes large – providing us with orchestral music that’s as moving as it is masterly. Our former Chief Conductor Edo de Waart makes a welcome return to conduct these dramatic masterpieces.
