Program Notes

Description

It's the ultimate 20th-century two-fer—Markus Stenz conducts Rachmaninov's beloved Piano Concerto No. 2, packed with luscious, soaring melodies and pianistic fireworks, alongside Bartók's sassy Concerto for Orchestra, written in upstate New York in 1943. The guest pianist is Simon Trpčeski. The program opens with Darker America by the "Dean of Afro-American composers" William Grant Still.
