Tribute to Rachmaninoff on the 70th anniversary of his death

The Athens State Orchestra will be marking the seventieth anniversary of the death of Sergei Rachmaninoff with a programme consisting of two of his finest and most charming works. The celebrated pianist Nikolai Demidenko joins us for a performance of the Russian composer’s rarely played but powerful Fourth Concerto, while Vassilis Christopoulos guides the orchestra through his Second Symphony, a work awash with harmonic beauty and fiery passion.
