Paganini rhapsody for piano

Olli Mustonen, conductor
Irina Zahharenkova, piano
Turku Philharmonic Orchestra

Gioachino Rossini: Overture to the opera Semiramide
Serge Rachmaninov: Rhapsody on a Theme by Paganini
Serge Prokofiev: Symphony no. 3 in C minor

Rossini is famous for his operas, and the overture to his Semiramide has all the enthusiasm and energy one might ever wish for. The programme continues with the equally brisk Rhapsody on a Theme by Paganini. The well-known theme, a guaranteed earworm, is treated to increasingly brilliant and virtuosic variations. Eldar Nebolsin returns to shine with the Turku Philharmonic. Designed by Olli Mustonen, the programme concludes with Prokofiev’s vivacious Symphony no. 3.
