Rachmaninoff - Symphony No. 2
The famous double concerto View From Olympus by Kiwi composer John Psathas ONZM takes you on a rhythmic journey of Greek percussion styles with Sydney percussionist Jeremy Fitzsimons and pianist Michael Houstoun.
A crowd favourite, Rachmaninoff’s Symphony No. 2 is the work that truly established his reputation as Tchaikovsky’s heir as the master of Russian romanticism.
The fabulous Russian melodies for strings, woodwinds and brass, plumb the darkest emotional depths while simultaneously soaring into light.
Join Orchestra Wellington and Marc Taddei for a truly inspirational night of triumphant and daring symphonic music at Rachmaninoff 2: Triumph.
