What if a symphony could be a great love story – a sweeping, widescreen epic filled with stormy skies, triumphant sunbursts and huge, heartfelt tunes that seem to roll on to the horizon? Rachmaninov’s Second Symphony is all that and more, and it’s a magnificent showcase for rising star Patrick Hahn. Liszt’s glittering First Piano Concerto, meanwhile, was written by (and for) the greatest pianist on earth. Ukrainian keyboard sensation Vadym Kholodenko has got it well and truly in hand.
