SERGEI RACHMANINOFF: Piano Concerto No. 3
EDWARD ELGAR: Enigma Variations
Rachmaninoff's Third Piano Concerto, an engine of lush melodies, churning energies and Russian romanticism, is performed by Khatia Buniatishvili, a “shining pianist at the height of her abilities.” Elgar's Enigma Variations are sketches of his dear friends, each containing, as Elgar noted, "a distinct idea founded on some particular personality." Elim Chan, “an impressive young conductor who makes an occasion of orchestral writing” (The New York Times), takes us through each heartfelt journey.
