Rachmaninov Piano Concerto 2
Esplanade Concert Hall
Concerto for Orchestra
Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor, Op. 18
DARK MAJESTY, WILD ELEGANCE
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
