    Rachmaninoff- Piano Concerto No. 3

    INTERMISSION

    Bruckner- Symphony No. 8

    Preferably, this concert would take place with the BPO, and a Russian pianist as soloist for the concerto.

    My dream concert is one in which I am the conductor. The results are so impressive that a concert hall full of beauties storm the stage, all seeking my attention. The recording of the concert is so fabulous that it is immediately released to the public and outsells any recording - past/present/future. What is the program? Hummel-Trumpet Concerto, Mahler-2, RK-Russian Eater Overture, Agapkin-Slavic Farewell, Jenkins-Palladio. Then after intermission, all the grand symphonies ever written...

    There are two kinds of music, good music and the other kind. - Duke Ellington.

    At a gala concert in 1938 in honour of Sir Henry Wood, RVW's Serenade to Music was premiered and Rachmaninoff was soloist in his 2nd piano concerto. Do I wish I was there? Oh yes...

    Rachmaninoff is supposed to have sent RVW a note thanking him "For the most beautiful music I have ever heard".
