Sergio A. Mims: Afro-Venezuelan Maestro Rafael Payare makes Royal Festival Hall debut in London Oct. 8, 2015 with All-Russian Program

Rafael Payare

Sergio A. Mims writes:

Came across this info that Rafael Payare will be conducting the Philharmonia Orchestra in a concert of Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninov at the London Southbank Centre on Oct. 8

Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky: Fantasy Overture, Romeo & Juliet (vers. standard, 1880)
Sergey Rachmaninov: Piano Concerto No.4
Sergey Rachmaninov: Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini
Modest Petrovich Mussorgsky: Pictures at an Exhibition orch. Ravel

An all-Russian extravaganza focusing on Rachmaninov's final works for piano and orchestra.
The pieces are performed by Daniil Trifonov as part of his Rachmaninov Piano Concerto Cycle.
They are framed by two of the most popular works in the repertoire, conducted by Rafael Payare, making his Royal Festival Hall début.
