Hear the Royal College of Music Symphony Orchestra this summer performing unforgettable works by Holst and Rachmaninov.
In Southbank Centre’s newly refurbished Queen Elizabeth Hall, talented musicians are joined by conductor and RCM graduate Andrew Gourlay. Described as ‘One to Watch’ by Gramophone magazine, Gourlay directs this stunning programme, which delves into the depths of astrology in Holst’s iconic suite The Planets.
Alongside, Victor Maslov joins the orchestra to perform one of the most technically challenging pieces in the pianist’s repertoire: Rachmaninov’s powerful concerto no 3, featured prominently in the Oscar-winning movie Shine.
