Royal Philharmonic Orchestra - Rachmaninov

Classical Music Alive 23/24

Manoj Kamps, Conductor 

Federico Colli, Piano

Wagner | Lohengrin: Prelude to Act 1

Rachmaninov | Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini

Brahms | Symphony No.2

Join the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and Manoj Kamps for an evening of sparkling music.

The stage is set by Wagner’s ethereal Prelude to Lohengrin where Wagner uses music to magically depict the Holy Grail descending from Heaven to earth starting with beautiful, shimmering strings.

Pianist Federico Colli then joins the Orchestra for Rachmaninov’s much-loved Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini – a nimble ode to what has to be one of the most instantly recognisable themes of the repertoire.

Brahms’ Symphony No.2 stands out as one of his greatest musical achievements. It immerses the audience in inspired orchestration, a devastatingly powerful Adagio and a triumphant finale.
