|Rachmaninoff: Symphony No. 2|
Arensky Chamber Orchestra
Will Kunhardt, Conductor
Rachmaninov (arr Farrington): Symphony No 2
The ACO return to the Forge with Rachmaninoff’s opulent Second Symphony, arranged for chamber orchestra.
It is a work imbued with fierce patriotism and the longings of an artist in exile. It tells of Rachmaninoff's worldwide triumphs, yet also of his failings and self doubt. The ‘dies irae’ chant lurks in the shadows, a morbid reminder of his preoccupation with death. But above all the symphony sings with extraordinary beauty, sumptuous colour and impossible-to-forget melodies.
Join the ACO as they unravel this luxurious sound-world with excerpts, short performances and stories from Rachmaninoff’s life. Then sit back and enjoy perhaps the ultimate Romantic Symphony, and the world premiere performance of our new arrangement.
