GRIEG Peer Gynt: Suite No.1

RACHMANINOV Piano Concerto No.2

SIBELIUS Symphony No.2

Antony Hermus Conductor
Roman Kosyakov Piano

The show opens with Grieg’s Suite No. 1 from Peer Gynt, packed full of lush melodies and teasing suspenseful themes that build up to the ever-popular In the Hall of the Mountain King which audiences will instantly recognise from the Alton Towers adverts. Then, follows Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No.2, which audiences may recognise as the haunting theme to the classic film Brief Encounter. The concert closes with Sibelius’ Symphony No.2, the iconic Nordic Symphony that includes an ominous passage of plucked basses and cellos at the start of the second movement and a theatrical final movement with traditional folk-song elements woven in.
