Nottingham Philharmonic Orchestra invites you to a concert of two romantic masterworks on Sunday 29th March at 3pm in the Albert Hall, Nottingham.   We have Ian Buckle playing Brahms’ First Piano Concerto, and then the Second Symphony by Rachmaninov.

As a young man Brahms was a superb pianist, and his earliest major compositions are all for piano.  His first piano concerto has an epic grandeur that had not been seen since Beethoven's Emperor concerto.The central slow movement was described by the composer, to Clara Schumann, as “a gentle portrait of you”, and its intimate dialogue reflects a more private side to the composer.

Ian Buckle, our soloist has a varied performing career including soloist, accompanist, chamber musician and orchestral pianist,  and he has appeared as soloist with both the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic and the John Wilson Orchestra on numerous occasions.

Rachmaninov’s second symphony is his finest, and is full of glorious tunes.  The music covers a huge emotional range, from the dark brooding opening, through the drama of the first movement and the yearning nostalgia of the slow movement to the driving passion of the finale. The symphony was premiered in St.Petersburg in 1908 with Rachmaninov himself conducting. It was repeated a few days later in Moscow, and such was the success that it was soon heard all over Europe.
