BBC PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA – COPLAND AND RACHMANINOV
Kathryn Rudge joins BBC Philharmonic Principal Guest Conductor, Ben Gernon, for a live BBC Radio 3 broadcast.
We open this afternoon with Old American Songs: set 2 from Copland. The composer himself wrote, “Everyone seemed to enjoy singing and hearing the first set of folk song settings so much that I decided to arrange a second group of five.”
Closing this afternoon’s live broadcast is Rachmaninov’s mercurial Second Symphony with its hauntingly beautiful Adagio and impassioned finale.
