Semyon Bychkov and Kirill Gerstein

Rarely has the Russian soul been captured in music so impressively as in Sergei Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No. 2 – in its melancholy brooding, its singing and revolt. In this performance with Semyon Bychkov, pianist Kirill Gerstein debuts with the Berliner Philharmoniker. Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky fosters a completely different attitude in his Third Symphony, which is shaped by the festive cheer and dancing brilliance of his famous ballets.
