London Symphony Orchestra/Sir Simon Rattle & Mitsuko UchidaBarbican Centre, Barbican Hall, EC2Y 8DS, [Venue Details]
Mitsuko Uchida and Sir Simon Rattle: one of the great musical partnerships of our time, in a concert filled with sweet and sorrowful longing.
True romance: Robert Schumann was utterly smitten with his wife Clara, a world-famous pianist. And whether it’s the drama of Genoveva or the tenderness of his only Piano Concerto, it’s easy to hear that his inspiration was love. You can’t miss the emotion in Rachmaninov’s Third Symphony, either. It’s the sound of an artist exiled from his roots, singing sad sweet songs in a new world filled with film scores and jazz.
