2019-06-06_19-30 _ Russian Masters

Russian Masters

7:30 PM, Verizon Hall
Yannick Nézet-Séguin - Conductor
Beatrice Rana - Piano
Stravinsky - Funeral Song
Prokofiev - Piano Concerto No. 3
INTERMISSION -
Rachmaninoff - Symphony No. 1

Igor Stravinsky composed his Funeral Song in 1908, as a memorial tribute to his teacher, Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov. The score was lost for over 100 years and was only rediscovered in 2015. It now offers fascinating insights into Stravinsky's emerging orchestral technique. The score to Rachmaninoff's Symphony No. 1 was also lost for a time after the composer left Russia; it is now firmly established in the symphonic repertoire. Prokofiev's Third Piano Concerto is his most popular.

The June 6 concert is sponsored by
