Schubert Mirjams Siegesgesang
Schumann Piano Concerto
Rachmaninoff Symphonic Dances
Rachmaninoff’s final composition, Symphonic Dances, has lush, nostalgic melodies inspired by Russian Orthodox and medieval chant, as well as dramatic dance energy imaginable only with a virtuosic 20th-century orchestra. This concert journey begins with the grand scope of Schubert’s “Miriam’s Song of Triumph” (Mirjams Siegesgesang), and continues with glimpses into Robert Schumann’s lyrical, yet sometimes melancholic world as it travels through the irresistible melodies and fiery passionate notes of his Piano Concerto.
