This all-Rachmaninov programme opens with the composer’s early composition from 1888, the Scherzo in Dminor. Argentinian pianist Nelson Goerner returns with Rachmaninov’s most popular piano concerto – a popularity owing to its abundance of memorable melodies. Rachmaninov’s 'symphonic fantasy', The Rock, is prefaced by lines from a poem by Lermontov - 'The golden cloud slept through the night / Upon the breast of the giant-rock.'
