With the refined orchestral sounds of How slow the wind, Takemitsu renders every corner of the orchestra audible, and that sets the scene for the concert as a whole. Paavi Järvi and Khatia Buniatishvili have a good rapport, and this will no doubt lead to chemistry on stage for Beethoven’s Third Piano Concerto. The delightful Khatia Buniatishvili takes the entire orchestra with her through her powerful (some say virile) piano technique and delightfully feminine presence. For a long time, Rachmaninov was unsure of his Second Symphony and his talents as a composer. History has proven that he needn’t have been!
