Three Russians make for a richly coloured and exhilarating concert. Liadov's jewel-like miniature has all the ingredients of the best Russian fairytales: it's haunting, mysterious and malevolent, and it's bewitching to the ear!
The irresistible melodies of Rachmaninoff's best-loved piano concerto sound as if they could be pop songs - and in fact several of them are.
The program ends with the whirling passion of Tchaikovsky's symphonic fantasia after Dante - a story of illicit love, murder and the tempests of hell.
And for his Sydney Symphony debut, Thomas Sanderling has chosen music by Peter Sculthorpe: the extrovert sounds, flowing melodies and entrancing rhythms of Sun Song.
