LPO Conductor Emeritus Vladimir Jurowski presents Richard Strauss’s spectacular, symphonic retelling of Don Quixote: complete with sorcerers, knights, and windmills.
Don Quixote Rides Again
London Philharmonic Orchestra
Vladimir Jurowski has always charted a very personal musical path – and in his first concert as Conductor Emeritus he explores the present as well as the past. For Jurowski, Rachmaninoff’s music is all about ‘human life, human suffering, human joys’, and tonight he celebrates the soaring melodies and restless energy of the beautiful, neglected Third Symphony. And before this is something entirely original and new: a nocturne with a haunting difference from the imagination of LPO Composer-in-Residence Brett Dean. Brett Dean Notturno inquieto (Rivisitato) (world premiere of new version) Rachmaninoff Symphony No. 3 This concert will be filmed on 8 December 2021 at the Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall.
