Overview

The Fourth concerto may be the least popular of Rachmaninoff’s piano concertos, yet this does not mean it is lacking in value, emotional depth and charm. On the contrary, in the hands of up-and-coming Bulgarian pianist and the outstanding conductor Michel Tilkin, it promises to move even the most discerning of listeners. Shostakovich’s explosive Fifth Symphony needs no introduction, as it is considered a 20th-century symphonic masterpiece. Alongside these works, the Athens State Orchestra presents the Asia Minor Rhapsody, which the great Yannis Konstantinidis composed as “a musical epitaph to a life and a world forever lost.
