Gennady Rozhdestvensky and Victoria Postnikova return this season with an all-Rachmaninov concert, featuring a performance of the Fourth Concerto, which, though often overshadowed by its two immediate predecessors in terms of popularity, demonstrates striking modernity in its melodic structure.

The very last music he ever composed, the Symphonic Dances demonstrate Rachmaninov’s fascination with the different sounds created by individual orchestra instruments, and highlights, unusually, an alto saxophone as a solo instrument.
