    Default Rach 3

    I am going to be in London between the 26th and 31st May. I was wondering if by some stroke of luck there will be a performance of the Rach 3 anywhere IN London or the vicinities.

    *fingers crossed*

    If it's the symphony you mean, I'm performing this in The Anvil in Basingstoke on the 29th with the Hampshire County Youth Orchestra.

    Hello,
    As you mentioned the Rach 3 I recalled that the Philharmonia are including it in their forthcoming season. Unhappily their only London performance of it is in Feb, with Berezovsky.
    I've scanned the various online concert diaries but to no avail.
    Best Wishes,
    Z.W.

    I was in London some weeks ago, searching my butt off for someone playing Rach 3 around the city, but unfortunatly, noone was.

    It's difficult to catch a decent performance of this piece... not too many play it, even fewer play it well.

    I have conducted this once and seen it live 3 times. On all 4 occasions there was much disarray between piano and orchestra, usually because the pianist modifies the tempo from bar to bar on the basis of the technical difficulty of each bar, not rubato.

    Terribly difficult.
