Conductor: Tom Hammond
Soloist: Veronika Shoot (piano)

Rachmaninoff: Vocalise
Shostakovich: Piano Concerto No. 2
Tchaikovsky: Symphony No.4

Sergei Rachmaninoff’s Vocalise is a hauntingly beautiful rearrangement for strings of a song the composer wrote in 1915.

Dmitri Shostakovich’s Piano Concerto No.2, described as ‘uncharacteristically cheerful’, was written in 1957 for his son, Maxim, who premiered the piece during his graduation at the Moscow Conservatory.

Tchaikovsky’s dramatic and large-scale Symphony No.4 is one of the most popular symphonies of the late 19th century.
