Vasily Petrenko  conductor
Nobuyuki Tsujii  piano

Walton  Partita
Rachmaninov  Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini
Tchaikovsky  Symphony No. 4

William Walton’s Partita gets this concert off to a boisterous start. Wryly described by the composer as having “no ulterior motives or meaning behind it”, this showpiece shows Walton at his best. No less appealing is Rachmaninov’s famous Rhapsody which makes hay with the theme from Paganini’s Caprice for solo violin. Japanese pianist, Nobuyuki Tsujii – joint Gold Medal winner of the 2009 Van Cliburn Piano Competition – makes his eagerly-anticipated Nottingham debut. Vasily Petrenko and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra are an irresistible combination in Russian repertoire, so expect to be on the edge of your seat during Tchaikovsky’s Fourth Symphony. It’s the definitive emotional roller-coaster, with an arresting fanfare signalling the forces of fate, but ending joyfully with a whirling folk dance finale.

Free pre-concert talk, 6.30pm in the auditorium: Professor Robert Adlington, University of Huddersfield:  ‘Variations of Variations: the lure of Paganini’s Caprice no. 24’.
