Making the most of Royal Festival Hall's acoustics, Philharmonia Orchestra present an all-Russian programme under the helm of Yuri Temirkanov, Chief Conductor of the Saint Petersburg Philharmonic. The concert opens with Tchaikovsky's frenetic fantasia Francesca de Rimini, and continues with his Violin Concerto. The second half delivers Mussorgsky's defining work, Pictures at an Exhibition. Ravel's arrangement of the ten-movement suite, by way of the melancholic Gnomus and the uplifting peaks of The Great Gate of Kiev, will deliver a rich invocation of 19th century Russia.
