Music Classical music

Extraordinary. Technically brilliant. Absolutely great.

Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 3 has the reputation of being one of the most challenging piano concertos in classical repertoire. Under the baton NAC Principal Guest Conductor John Storgårds, Russian pianist Denis Kozhukhin tackles the piece with sharp intelligence, calm maturity and absolute wisdom. Paired with Nielsen’s An Imaginary Trip to the Faroe Islands and Sibelius’s Symphony No. 6, the evening highlights the most dramatic and expressive music from Denmark, Russia and Finland.

Enjoy in the newly renovated Southam Hall. Better Seats. Better Sound. Better Access.
