Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No. 2

— Interval —

Shostakovich Symphony No. 10

The Philharmonia’s Principal Guest Conductor – the inimitable Marin Alsop – performs with us in Canterbury for the first time.

A piano part with more memorable melodies than many composers write in a lifetime, Rachmaninov’s Second Piano Concerto is arguably the most popular in classical music history. Jeneba Kanneh-Mason made her Philharmonia debut with the piece in 2022, a performance in which she was praised for her ‘poetry and confidence’ (The Guardian). She returns tonight to win the hearts of our audience in Canterbury.

Shostakovich’s epic Symphony No. 10 completes the programme. Rumoured to contain a musical depiction of Stalin, this symphony certainly speaks of darkness and fear. But Shostakovich also wove in a motif whose notes represent his own name – the individual standing up against oppression, humanity and creativity defiant and unvanquished.
