Jaap | Dvořák 7 – Hong Kong Philharmonic

Inspiration can blossom anywhere. Anna Clyne’s Within Her Arms turns a memory of her mother into music of timeless beauty. Dvořák saw a train entering a station: the melody that popped into his head grew into one of the stormiest and most powerful symphonies of the 19th century, beloved of Jaap van Zweden. And Rachmaninov took a scrap of a tune by Paganini and spun it into pure gold. Dazzling, playful and deliriously romantic, the Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini is still a matchless showpiece for a truly great pianist – so it’s perfect for our soloist Avan Yu.
