An evening revolving around the thrilling orchestral showpiece that is Rachmaninoff's Third Symphony. Conductor Osmo Vänskä and the London Philharmonic Orchestra performed the work in 2007 and the performance - of rare involvement, energy and beauty - became a critically acclaimed recording.

Now Vänskä, whose concerts with the orchestra invariably combine sparks of energy with startling levels of finesse, returns for a second look at this most irrepressible symphony of yearning and longing, with Dvorák's treacle-toned Violin Concerto and music of plaintive rhapsody from Carl Nielsen to begin.
