  Beethoven Symphony No.8
Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No.3
with Alissa Firsova, piano
Janacek Taras Bulba

St Albans Symphony Orchestra
Conductor Bjorn Bantock

The Eighth Symphony is full of joviality, good humour and lightness of texture and mood despite the fact that at the time Beethoven was immersed in emotional turmoil emanating from a family feud. He referred to the symphony, affectionately, as “the little one”.

Rachmaninov left his native Russia in 1917 after training at the Conservatories of Moscow and St. Petersburg and establishing himself as a composer, pianist and conductor. He toured the world extensively in the latter two roles and made his mark with his very skilfully written works. His Third Piano Concerto, based around melodic ideas of great beauty and simplicity, yet notorious for its technical demands, is regarded by many as the epitome of the piano concerto.

Alissa Firsova was born in Moscow  into a family of composers. In 1991 she and her family moved to England, where she studied at the Purcell School and the Royal Academy of Music as performer, conductor and composer. Alissa lives and works in St Albans.
