Grace-Evangeline Mason The Imagined Forest (joint commission with BBC Proms)
Dukas La Péri: Fanfare and poème dansé
Rachmaninov Symphony No.2
Domingo Hindoyan conductor
Eva Thorarinsdottir violin
Imagine a symphony as vast as Russia itself – a musical journey on an epic scale, swept by storms, bursting with melody, and (of course) glowing with tenderness and beauty.
It might sound very like Rachmaninov’s magnificent Second Symphony: one of those pieces that we just adore playing. Domingo Hindoyan conducts a real Liverpool favourite, conjures up Dukas’ fairytale world, and begins with an entirely new adventure: a journey deep into the woods with the brilliant young British composer Grace-Evangeline Mason.
