Vasily Petrenko conductor
Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra
Philip Glass Symphony No.11
Rachmaninov Symphony No.2
The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and Vasily Petrenko thrilled Gateshead audiences with their astounding Rachmaninov last season. This visit includes the composer’s most popular – and most romantic – symphony, and by complete contrast Philip Glass’ new Symphony No.11.
Premiered at Carnegie Hall in January it was described as ‘full of body-rocking vitality’, with ‘climaxes that burst open in joyous excitement’.
