Rachmaninoff Trio élégiaque No 2 in D minor Op 9
Please note that finish times are approximate and subject to change
Rachmaninoff’s life and career crossed over the 19th and 20th centuries, and took him from Europe to the US. In this series we hear his music alongside works by his friends and contemporaries.
The young Rachmaninoff wears his heart on his sleeve, as Leonore Trio give a rare performance of his sweeping Trio élégiaque No 2.
‘All my thoughts, feelings, powers belonged to it … every phrase made me tremble.’ The young Rachmaninoff idolised Tchaikovsky, and when the great master died suddenly in 1893, he poured all his sorrow into a piano trio on an epic scale, as ambitious as it is passionate.
Concert postponed from 14 January 2022
Change of Artist
