CONCERT REVIEWS: Wednesday 25 March 2015

Wednesday 25 March saw two 22-year-olds take charge: Venezuelan Ilyich Rivas conducted and Dmitry Mayboroda dazzled in the final version of Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 1. The Rachmaninoff was flanked by Mozart's Symphony No. 36 (Linz) and Dvořák's Symphony No. 8.

Read the reviews from the concert:

'In an attractively planned programme, part of the Rachmaninoff Inside Out series, the London Philharmonic played superbly for two remarkable young musicians.

This was modern-instrument interpretation of 18th-century music at its best. Unfussy, direct and with ideal tempos … [reminiscent of] of the great conductors of the German tradition.


I see a great future for this young conductor. The LPO responded to his direction which is clear and unaffected and played outstandingly well.'  Antony Hodgson, Classical Source, 26 March 2015
