Jurowski conducts Rachmaninoff

Date: 8 Dec
Time: 19:30
Vladimir Jurowski conductor, Leonidas Kavakos violin

Shostakovich Violin Concerto No. 1
Brett Dean Notturno inquieto (Rivisitato) (world premiere of new version)
Rachmaninoff Symphony No. 3

In his first concert as Conductor Emeritus, Vladimir Jurowski conducts Shostakovich's searing First Violin Concerto, featuring Leonidas Kavakos, before Rachmaninoff's Third Symphony, and a haunting nocturne by Brett Dean.

Vladimir Jurowski has always charted a very personal musical path - and in his first concert as Conductor Emeritus he explores the present as well as the past. For Jurowski, Rachmaninoff's music is all about 'human life, human suffering, human joys', and tonight he celebrates the soaring melodies and restless energy of the beautiful, neglected Third Symphony. The great Leonidas Kavakos is the soloist in Shostakovich's searing First Violin Concerto - music that asks as many questions as it answers. And in between - because this is Jurowski - comes something entirely original and new: a nocturne with a haunting difference from the imagination of LPO Composer-in-Residence Brett Dean.
