Rachmaninoff Third Concerto & Enigma Variations
SERGEI RACHMANINOFF: Piano Concerto No. 3
EDWARD ELGAR: Enigma Variations
Zarathustra’s rumbling organ and ascending brass are just the start of a revelation of orchestral colors and big, big moments.
ROBERT SCHUMANN: Piano Concerto
RICHARD STRAUSS: Also sprach Zarathustra ("Thus Spake Zarathustra")
The famous ascending brass passage that opens Zarathustra is just the tip of this orchestral iceberg. Prepare yourself for a wild ride of big moments that show the range of the CSO musicians' virtuosity. French pianist Hélène Grimaud—a virtuoso in her own right whose “performances attempt, whenever possible, to shake up conventional pianistic wisdom” (The New Yorker)—reunites with Louis Langrée for Schumann’s Piano Concerto.
