History, heritage, fate, and a tour-de-force of piano skill and colour combine in this 'Russian Roots' concert from Gianandrea Noseda, bringing together Rimsky-Korsakov, Prokofiev and Tchaikovsky.

Rimsky-Korsakov dug deep into Russian legends and folk tales for his opera The Legend of the Invisible City of Kitezh. Follow the mythical, magical story of the 'Russian Atlantis' in this orchestral suite, told through the composer's glittering orchestral palette.

Prokofiev's trademarks as a composer for the piano fill the Third Piano Concerto - wit, lyricism, dramatic changes of mood, and spectacular piano fireworks. Russian pianist Denis Matsuev takes on the fierce technical demands of the solo part, which sweeps up and down the length of the keyboard and moves at breathtaking speed. Tchaikovsky's Fifth Symphony, brimming over with drama and emotional intensity, brings the concert to a close, charting a course from darkness to a final, life-affirming glimmer of optimism.
