Vladimir Ashkenazy’s exploration of Rachmaninov’s orchestral works culminates with the composer’s First Symphony.
The work is unified by the motif shaped by the Dies Irae of Gregorian chant, a stamp that would appear again and again in Rachmaninov’s works.
Other evening highlights are Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto performed by rising-star pianist Alice Sara Ott and Alexandr Borodin’s Prince Igor Overture.
