Firsova Piano Concerto (United States premiere—Philadelphia Orchestra co-commission)
Rachmaninoff Symphony No. 3

Our celebration of the Orchestra’s shared history with Sergei Rachmaninoff continues with his poignant Third Symphony, given its world premiere by The Philadelphia Orchestra and Leopold Stokowski in 1936. In it he wedded a distinctive musical style formed over four decades with an idealized sound he kept in his mind of The Philadelphia Orchestra, the ensemble he loved best and worked with the most. The program begins with the U.S. premiere of Russian composer Elena Firsova’s Piano Concerto, masterfully performed by soloist Yefim Bronfman.
