Mission: to seek and share inspiration
This weekend the Orchestra celebrates the music of Sergei Rachmaninoff.
After an opening featuring the multi-hued Cinq Études-tableaux (“Five Study Pictures”), the “ferociously talented” (New York Times) young pianist Conrad Tao performs the Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, brilliant variations on an irresistible melody. The Bells, featuring the May Festival Chorus, is the composer’s ingenious treatment of Edgar Allen Poe’s poem by the same name, including cheerful sleigh bells, melodious marriage bells, brazen alarms and solemn death-knells.
