Rachmaninoff’s Rhapsody

Friday, November 17, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - Sunday, November 19, 2017 @ 5:00 pm

Andrés and Denis Kozhukhin reunite for a program featuring three works inspired by the same haunting melody: the theme from Paganini’s demonically difficult Caprice No. 24 for Solo Violin. A symbol of virtuoso technique, this melody inspired both Rachmaninoff’s and Lutoslawski’s showpieces for piano and orchestra as well as Blacher’s purely orchestral fireworks. Andrés continues his multi-season exploration of Ives’ quintessentially American music with his Symphony No. 3, The Camp Meeting.
