Perhaps the greatest composer-pianist-conductor that ever lived, we hear a culmination of Rachmaninoff's life and work in his lively, surreal, and spooky Symphonic Dances, featuring the Day of Reckoning theme, which the composer used in many of his works to communicate with eternity.
Combining jaw-dropping virtuosity with majestic beauty, Igor Pikayzen illuminates and elevates our spirit with Brahm's Violin Concerto. Anna Clyne's (b. 1980) Masquerade is a celebration and exploration of the historical interplay between music and dance.
