Music is enough for a lifetime, but a lifetime is not enough for music.
- Sergei Rachmaninoff
The Russian National Orchestra head to Davies Symphony Hall this winter with a tremendous program saluting their fellow countryman, the inimitable Sergei Rachmaninoff. Experience the romantic colossus that is the unforgettable Second Piano Concerto, his Vocalise, and final work - the folk-inspired Symphonic Dances. With pianist George Li joining the Orchestra to tackle the technical heights of the esteemed virtuoso, the evening is likely to be a memorable one for fans of the man himself.
One of the greats of the romantic period, Rachmaninoff is known for his almost impossible feats of composition, often feared by those attempting them, be they professional or amateur! However, it is this attention to detail that has made him one of the most enduring and in demand artists of the 21st Century.
