The SSO’s second all-Rachmaninov programme this season features the return of star conductor Vladimir Ashkenazy, together with prize-winning Russian pianist Alexei Volodin performing in the grand Third Piano Concerto, a work that gained huge popularity after it was used in the soundtrack of the movie Shine. Rachmaninov’s final work, the Symphonic Dances, includes a solo part for alto saxophone and showcases unique contributions from individual instruments in the orchestra.
