London Philharmonic Orchestra in Eastbourne | Rachmaninoff | 13th March 2022 | Congress Theatre, Eastbourne, East Sussex
London Philharmonic Orchestra in Eastbourneat Congress Theatre, on 13th March 2022 Martin James Bartlett plays Rachmaninoff Rhapsody plus Holly Mathieson conducts Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 1 and Williams Fantasia.
‘Captivating from start to finish’ declared one critic when Martin James Bartlett won BBC Young Musician of the Year in 2014. Time flies: since that incredible night Bartlett has established himself as one of the most imaginative (and brilliant) pianists of his generation. He’s perfect, in other words for the fantasy, the humour and the pure, heart-on-sleeve romance of Rachmaninoff’s hugely popular Rhapsody.
Conductor Holly Mathieson stays in Russia for Tchaikovsky’s fairytale First Symphony, and she rediscovers a forgotten British classic from the 1940s – the delightful Fantasia on Welsh Nursery Tunes by Grace Williams. Britten was a fan: we think you’ll hear why.
