Carlo Rizzi is one of the finest conductors in the world, dynamic, energetic and insightful. In the first half, he conducts two works from his native Italy. Respighi’s The Fountains of Rome vividly illustrates four of the capital’s iconic water features at different times of the day when their beauty blends perfectly with the surroundings.

No less charmingly graphic is Rossini’s William Tell Overture. It depicts dawn, a violent storm, an idyllic pastoral scene and, most famously, the cavalry galloping into view! In the main work, the emotional intensity is raised by Rachmaninov’s abundantly lyrical and superbly-crafted Second Symphony.
