Rachmaninoff's Third Piano Concerto

Thu, December 05, 2019 @ 1:30pm

Category: music


Prudential Hall @ New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC)
1 Center St
Newark, NJ  07102

   

Three works of deeply felt emotion, and the NJSO return of astonishing young American pianist George Li. This program has it all: melodies that linger in the heart, rich harmonies and dance-like rhythms.

XIAN ZHANG conductor

GEORGE LI piano

ANNA CLYNE Within Her Arms (NJSO Premiere)

A defining work in this Brooklyn-based composer’s career. Written for strings alone, this tender piece is the song of loss and memory for her mother.

RACHMANINOFF Piano Concerto No. 3

Rachmaninoff wrote this concerto to showcase his exceptional talent and blindingly fast technique. It starts with a deceptively simple melody that every beginner can play, but it quickly becomes the Everest of all piano concertos—one that few soloists attempt to conquer.

DVOŘÁK Symphony No. 8

Dvořák’s Eighth poured out of him while he was surrounded by the cherished Bohemian countryside that was his inspiration. Close your eyes and you’ll see the colors of autumn, awash in sunlight.
