  1. Overture, from Ruslan and Ludmilla - Mikhail Glinka
  2. Concerto for piano and orchestra No 2 in C minor Op 18 - Sergey Rachmaninov
  3. Symphony No 8 in G Op 88 - Antonín Dvorák

Glinka’s fizzing, exuberant overture to his opera captures the essence of Pushkin’s magical poem, rooted in Russian fairy tales. Rachmaninov’s second piano concerto was a breakthrough piece after years of creative block. Its passionate and lyrical character has deservedly made it a favourite amongst his works. Dvoràk’s eighth symphony was written at his house in the depths of rural Bohemia and is full of the spirit of Czech folksong and the countryside. Its four movements move between major and minor before building to an exuberant finale driven by whooping horn calls.
