Opening gestures can say a lot. The tolling piano chords in the first bars of Rachmaninov’s second concerto are iconic in their own right, presaging a tempestuous journey and a heady romance. And the horn-call that launches Schubert’s final masterpiece is the perfect gesture for a work that delights in the majesty of nature. Both works are broad and generous in their design, sweeping the listener up in exultant long lines.
