Information about the programme

“Rach 3”: thus the name often lovingly bestowed on Rachmaninoff’s Third Piano Concerto. Composed in 1909 for his first American tour, it has always languished somewhat in the shadow of his popular Second Piano Concerto. Yet this very fact reflects its special charisma: it is the longest of Rachmaninoff’s four concertos, is said to contain the greatest number of piano notes per second, and poses the greatest challenges to the soloist’s technique. But its virtuosity is not superficial and bombastic; time and again it is pervaded by gentle hues. The BRSO is delighted to rejoin the Korean pianist Seong-Jin Cho, who stepped in for Lang Lang at a benefit concert in 2018 and has long numbered among the world’s élite.
