The Faces of Rachmaninoff : program 2

Maison symphonique October 6, 2018

This event has ended

See upcoming Classical events

Under the virtuosic fingers of pianist Nicholas Angelich, the full force of Rachmaninoff’s last two piano concertos, to be performed in alternation, is revealed. The fourth incorporates elements of jazz and impressionism that mesh well with the exiled Russian composer’s percussive style, while the third is absolutely enthralling. The heritage of Beethoven and Bruckner as well as Tchaikovsky’s melodic inspiration are heard in the opening clarinet solo and powerful, fluent universe of Sibelius’s first symphony.

RACHMANINOFF: Piano Concerto No. 3
SIBELIUS: Symphony No. 1

*Commissioned by the Orchestre Métropolitain and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada
