Edward Gardner conducts a night of Rachmaninoff.

‘Hear the bells ring out, with their singing and ringing … they tell of oblivion’. For Serge Rachmaninoff, the sound of bells embodied the eternal soul of Russia, and he poured all his imagination into this sumptuous choral symphony, an odyssey through the whole of human life told in music of sparkling joy and rich, deep sorrow. It’s a glorious showcase for Edward Gardner and our world-class London Philharmonic Choir, and a wonderful way to follow the epic sweep of Rachmaninoff’s grandest piano concerto, with LPO favourite Leif Ove Andsnes (‘magisterial elegance, power, and insight’ – The New York Times) in the spotlight.
