Meet the biggest string instrument we have! While violins and cellos are easy to notice, the bass section is always at the back of the stage. Join us and meet one of our bass players, Nathaniel West, and learn all about that bass!
Yannick Nézet-Séguin - Conductor
Beatrice Rana - Piano
Stravinsky - Funeral Song
Prokofiev - Piano Concerto No. 3
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 typically energetic and ingenious work is a true partnership between the orchestra and our brilliant young soloist, Beatrice Rana.
