Overview

Today's concert is a dream come true for lovers of mellow string sounds, which we can sink into like a comfy velvet cushion.

After 1900, when this kind of luxuriant sound was already considered outdated, Rachmaninoff and Elgar added an extra touch of autumn melancholy. In return, they proudly accepted to be labeled as eternally passé. Today we recognize how modern this music actually is. A late harvest of Romanticism, it influenced the newly-emerging film music. In addition, they are simply beautiful in the most old-fashioned way, like an aged red wine that calms our mind and warms our heart.
