Why See Seattle Symphony - Rachmaninov Symphony No.3?
Cristian Macelaru Conducts Rachmaninov's Third
Two very special guest performers join forces with the Seattle Symphony Orchestra to present an arresting program of Boulanger, Elgar and Rachmaninov. World renowned conductor Cristian Macelaru, who recently ended his tenure with the Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra to become music director of the Cabrillo Festival Of Contemporary Music, will be joined Vilde Frang, a Norwegian violinist and rising young star of the classical scene.
The evening begins with Lilli Boulanger's breathtaking symphonic poem D'un Matin de Printemps, after which Frang will flex her bow on Elgar's compelling Violin Concerto, employing her virtuosic technique during the emotionally and technically demanding work. Closing the program will be Rachmaninov's third and final symphony, a concise yet melodically rich work filled with Russian-inspired rhythms.
Opening night: 1 February 2018
