Reinhold Glière’s Horn Concerto is a bravura work that demands a virtuoso performance from the soloist – a task that Christoph Eß, solo horn player of the Bamberger Symphoniker, is delighted to take on.
Rachmaninoff’s works have the reputation of extravagant emotiveness, but one glance at his final creative period reveals a different side. His third symphony seems to contain a dark secret.
