Performance Details

Yannick Nézet-Séguin Conductor
Yefim Bronfman Piano

PROGRAM
Fung Dust Devils
Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 4
INTERMISSION
Rachmaninoff Symphony No. 3

The Orchestra returns to the Academy of Music for its first subscription concerts since moving to Verizon Hall in 2001. It's a fitting venue for Rachmaninoff's nostalgic, romantic Symphony No. 3, premiered by the composer's cherished Philadelphians in 1936 on that very same stage, with Leopold Stokowski conducting. The gentle, lone piano chords that open the Fourth Concerto were a radical construct when Beethoven premiered the wide-ranging and emotional work in 1808. Yefim Bronfman says he's always been drawn to its tenderness.
