Why See National Symphony Orchestra - Rachmaninoff's Second Piano Concerto?

Kirill Gerstein Rises to Rachmaninoff's Second Symphony

Don't miss a rousing all-Russian program of Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff and Stravinsky, forming part of the National Symphony Orchestra's 87th season. Helmed by world renowned Finnish conductor Hannu Lintu, the ensemble will be joined by none other than Gilmore Artist Award winning ivory-tickling marvel Kirill Gerstein, a pianist of formidable talent and dexterity who's fast becoming one of the world's leading performers.

The evening begins with Tchaikovsky's symphonic poem The Tempest. Inspired by the Shakespearean play, the fantasy overture is a stormy and romantic musical journey. This is followed by Rachmaninoff's energetic Piano Concerto No. 2, in which Mr. Gerstein will reach the demanding heights of the bold, brash and brilliant piece. The presentation ends with the softer melodies of Stravinksy's Le Baiser de la fee, the score of a ballet inspired by Tchaikovsky himself.
