    Dvorák, Rachmaninoff and Tchaikovsky | London Philharmonic Orchestra
    Jean-Efflam Bavouzet, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Vladimir Jurowski
    Congress Theatre Eastbourne BN21 4BP
    United Kingdom

    When Serge Rachmaninoff heard the famous Caprice in A minor by the mysterious 'devil's violinist' Paganini, he fell under the spell of its tonal to-and-fro and swaggering rhythmic shape. In 1934, Rachmaninoff set about examining, twisting, refracting and elaborating the tune into his spectacular Rhapsody that, once finished, proved devilish in the truest sense of the word.

    Some 40 years earlier Pyotr Tchaikovsky embarked upon the last creative act of his life – the composition of his overwhelming final symphony. From the gloom of its opening to the unleashing of its fateful torrents, the Symphony was a direct expression of Tchaikovsky's hopelessness, and arguably the most original since Beethoven's Ninth.

    Antonín Dvorák (1841-1904)
    Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini
    Sergey Rachmaninov (1873-1943)
