Reviews: 14 February 2012 – Neeme Järvi & Boris Giltburg

On Tuesday 14 February, the London Philharmonic Orchestra performed Rachmaninoff’s Symphony No. 2 and Piano Concerto No. 2 under conductor Neeme Järvi with pianist Boris Giltburg at Royal Festival Hall.

The concert is repeated tonight, Friday 17 February (very limited ticket availability: call the Box Office on 020 7840 4242).

Reviewed by Nick Breckenfield,
‘With great and characterful playing, the London Philharmonic followed Järvi’s direction in every surge of the music, seemingly effortlessly accommodating the exquisite slow movement [of the Second Symphony] with Robert Hill’s silky clarinet a high-spot as equally as the rumbustious scherzo and finale. It got a tremendous reception – deservedly so.’
