Rachmaninov Piano Concerto 2

SSO Gala

Rachmaninov Piano Concerto 2


Fri / 12 Apr 2019 / 7:30PM


Esplanade Concert Hall


    La Valse
    Concerto for Orchestra
    Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor, Op. 18


The Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No. 2: dark majesty, breathtaking Romanticism. The Lutoslawski Concerto for Orchestra, “an episodic symbiosis with folk music”. Ravel’s bewitching La Valse, a spine-tingling tribute to the waltz, hypnotic and exhilarating, intoxicating and elegant, ending in astonishment. This SSO Gala teams up two up-and-coming young artistes, French conductor Lionel Bringuier and Uzbek pianist Behzod Abduraimov.

This is a pianist who has it all: silky delicacy, mighty thunder-power, rare clarity – Seattle Times
