Rimsky-Korsakov Capriccio espagnol
Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No.1
Scriabin Symphony No.3 The Divine Poem
Vasily Petrenko – conductor
Simon Trpčeski – piano
The very epitome of Romantic music, Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No.1 is one of the most beloved concertos in the history of the modern keyboard. Appearing alongside the masterful orchestration and fiery drama of Rimsky-Korsakov’s Capriccio espagnol, Scriabin’s Third Symphony weaves a rich, textured canvas of romance and tragedy, as if from a film yet to be written.
