This all-Rachmaninov programme opens with the composer’s early composition from 1888, the Scherzo in D minor. Argentinian pianist Nelson Goerner returns with Rachmaninov’s most popular piano concerto – a popularity owing to its abundance of memorable melodies. Rachmaninov’s “symphonic fantasy”, The Rock, is prefaced by lines from a poem by Lermontov: “The golden cloud slept through the night / Upon the breast of the giant-rock.”
