8:00 pm Verizon Hall

Yannick delves into a yearlong exploration of the inimitable Philadelphia Sound and works it has premiered. What better way to set the tone than with Rachmaninoff, whose special connection to the Philadelphians was unique in the world. His divine Fourth Piano Concerto premiered in Philadelphia in 1927 with the composer at the keyboard and Leopold Stokowski conducting. Ormandy then premiered a revised version in 1941, again with Rachmaninoff as soloist. For these performances, the gifted 23-year-old Russian pianist Daniil Trifonov-- winner of the 2011 International Tchaikovsky Competition--makes his subscription debut. Journey on Sinbad's ship in Rimsky-Korsakov's sweeping Sheherazade--core Russian Romantic repertoire seemingly invented to showcase the Philadelphia Sound. The program opens with Ravel's own billowing seascape, Une Barque sur l'océan (A Ship on the Ocean), a work given its U.S. premiere by the Orchestra in 1953 with Ormandy conducting.
