Alexandria Symphony Orchestra presents Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No. 3

James Ross, conductor
Marianna Prjevalskaya, piano

REZNICEK: Overture to Donna Diana
SCHUMANN: Symphony No. 1″ Spring”
RACHMANINOFF: Piano Concerto No. 3

The ASO’s 2018-2019 season concludes in April, featuring Rachmaninoff’s famed Piano Concerto No. 3 with Robert Schumann’s poetic Symphony No. 1 “Spring.” Heralded as one of the most technically difficult concertos in the modern repertoire, its notoriety expanded in pop culture with the release of the 1996 film, Shine, loosely based on the life of pianist David Helfgott. By contrast, Schumann’s Symphony No. 1 “Spring” was an early work in the composer’s repertoire, inspired by German poetry and expanding on the composer’s early songs for voice and piano.
