Tumbling between granitic muscle and gossamer tenderness, Mahler's Symphony No. 5 is hearty fare for the orchestral player and the music lover alike. Wrought in the full power of Russia’s elite Mariinsky Orchestra under Valery Gergiev, the program also includes the “astounding” (Bachtrack) Russian pianist Denis Matsuev in one of Rachmaninoff’s best loved works: Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini.
Program:
Debussy: Prélude to The Afternoon of a Faun
Rachmaninoff: Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini
Mahler: Symphony No. 5
