Renowned Irish pianist Barry Douglas is a Vancouver favourite, and he brings a combination of power and grace to the piano that few can match. Douglas performs Rachmaninoff's lush, Romantic Piano Concerto No. 2, quite possibly the best-loved piano work of all, with its famous melodies, dense virtuosic writing for the piano, and rich orchestral score.
Written in the Soviet Union during World War II, Prokofiev's Symphony No. 5 is nonetheless a glorious, uplifting work, as the composer himself describes: "I conceived of it as glorifying the grandeur of the human spirit...praising the free and happy man—his strength, his generosity, and the purity of his soul."
