Liadov -   The Enchanted Lake
Shostakovich -   Cello Concerto No. 2
Rachmaninov -   Symphony No. 2

Antonio Pappano, acclaimed music director of the Royal Opera House at Covent Garden, returns to lead an all-Russian program featuring Rachmaninov's lush, song-filled Second Symphony. Its lyrical slow movement is one of the jewels of the repertoire. Shostakovich's dark and poignant Second Cello Concerto, one of the composer's last works, is a splendid showcase for virtuoso Han-Na Chang.
