Highlights

Russian Chamber Music: Lament & Inspiration

7:30pm | 18 October 2017 | Britten Theatre

Rachmaninov Trio élégiaque no 1 in G minor
Glazunov Saxophone Quartet op 109
Tchaikovsky Piano trio in A minor op 50

Dedicated 'in memory of a great artist' to pianist Nikolai Rubinstein, lament is at the heart of Tchaikovsky’s piano trio. Mournful and lyrical, Rachmaninov was inspired to use the same form for his first Trio élégiaque. In between we hear Glazunov’s landmark saxophone quartet, dedicated to Le Quatuor de la Musique de la Garde Républicaine ensemble.

This concert is part of the Philharmonia Orchestra's Voices of Revolution: Russia 1917 series.
