The Lucerne Festival Orchestra continued its Shanghai residency with three concerts under Riccardo Chailly.
In addition to Mahler’s Sixth Symphony – the foreboding Tragic Symphony whose finale features spectacular hammer blows – the program included Rachmaninoff's Third Piano Concerto and symphonies by Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff. The young Russian pianist Alexander Malofeev was the soloist.
Here are some impressions of the Shanghai residency.
