Melbourne Symphony Orchestra
Lawrence Renes


Rachmaninov Symphony No.2

About this performance

The MSO makes a welcome return to the stage (again) after Victoria's most recent lockdown with a performance of Rachmaninov's expansive Symphony No.2.

Known for his gorgeous melodies, Rachmaninov once again delivers in his Second Symphony – starting dark and heavy, before moving through the entire range of symphonic emotions from heartbreakingly tender to intensely stormy.

Join conductor Lawrence Renes for a spectacular and expressive symphonic journey – the perfect orchestral showcase for the return of the MSO!
