Simon Trpceski and Vasily Petrenko deliver fresh and disciplined readings of Rachmaninov's Second and Third Piano Concertos with the revitalised Royal Liverpool Philharmonic.

Trpceski's left hand provides a firm rhythmic underpinning, while Petrenko ensures tight counterpoint from the woodwind soloists, a long line and brilliantly metred dynamics from the strings. A performance of integrity and imagination, and one that reveals unexpected subtleties in music that too often seems simply to tumble from climax to climax.
