Rossini Overture, Semiramide
Dukas La Péri: Fanfare and poème dansé
Rachmaninov Symphony No.2
Domingo Hindoyan conductor
Is Rachmaninov’s Second the most romantic symphony ever written? Let’s just say that it’s got to be a contender: a true Russian epic, swept by storms, glowing with emotion and bursting with the kind of melody that you never forget.
Domingo Hindoyan conducts a real Liverpool favourite, first though, he sets the mood in sumptuous style. Rossini’s overture sparkles with Italian sunshine. And then Paul Dukas whirls us away to an imaginary Orient, for a tale of mystery, magic and (of course) love.
