The vivacious and fiendish Overture to Smetana’s The Bartered Bride opens this gripping programme. The comic opera is often considered a major contribution to the development of Czech music.
Shiran Wang then takes centre stage to perform Rachmaninov’s Second Piano Concerto, a staple of the classical canon and a firm favourite amongst audiences, with its soaring themes and emotional journey.
