Rachmaninoff The Bells 

“What a gush of euphony voluminously wells” from Rachmaninoff’s thrilling work The Bells, inspired by Edgar Allan Poe’s famous poem. The Philadelphia Symphonic Choir joins Yannick and the Orchestra to present one of Rachmaninoff’s most magnificent compositions. Rising star violinist Randall Goosby makes his Philadelphia Orchestra subscription debut with Florence Price’s violin concertos, as the Orchestra continues its exploration of her tremendous talent, life, and works. The program opens with Ravel’s La Valse, described by the composer as a Viennese waltz “mingled with, in my mind, the impression of a fantastic, fatal whirling.”
