Music to make your heart melt

Three very different musical characters meet in this British visit: a young Frenchwoman, an American classic and Sergei Rachmaninov, the »last Romantic« in music history. What an opportunity for the new chief conductor of the London Symphony Orchestra Sir Antonio Pappano and the Dutch violinist Janine Jansen to exhibit their versatility!

Imagine what might have become of Lili Boulanger, who composed »Of a Spring Morning« in 1918 at the age of 25? She sadly died soon thereafter so we will never know. But one thing is certain: she was one of the greatest talents of her generation. One man who did make the leap from promising hopeful to one of his country’s leading composers was Samuel Barber, whose Violin Concerto, Op. 14, premiered in 1941, enjoys enduring popularity.

Speaking of popularity: Rachmaninov’s Second Symphony is in a league of its own. The third movement of the work, which was premiered in Saint Petersburg in 1908, has melted the hearts of generations of concertgoers.
