London-based Australian pianist Piers Lane is one of the most inquisitive and engaging live performers of his generation. Described by Gramophone as possessing “a superb musical intelligence, sensitivity, and scintillating brilliance” Lane will be joining the CSO to perform Rachmaninoff’s second piano concerto.

A loveable rogue of misadventure and trickery, Till Eulenspiegel is a character that can be traced back to medieval folklore. Strauss’ tone poem is a colourful depiction of the mischief and mayhem created by this joker before he eventually receives his final come-uppance.

Rachmaninoff was deeply moved by Romantic artist Arnold Bocklin’s atmospheric painting, The Isle of the Dead depicting a solitary island-bound boat bearing a casket. Inspired by its haunting imagery, Rachmaninoff composed his tone poem of the same name in response. A remarkable work of the late Romantic era, it is a richly orchestrated jewel that evokes mystery and reverence.
