ECKART PREU, CONDUCTOR
NATASHA PAREMSKI, PIANO

Rachmaninoff was a teenager when he composed his unabashedly romantic Piano Concerto No. 1, filled with lyrical melodies and lush orchestration. The mood of Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 1 is a shimmering celebration of winter, belying the anguish he suffered during this time. He incorporates elements of Russian folk music along with what makes his later symphonies famous: atmosphere beauty, breathtaking melodies, and virtuosic brilliance. The concert opens with Glinka’s fiery Kamarinskaya, the first orchestral work based entirely on Russian folk music. 

The Music

Mikhail Glinka ● Kamarinskaya 
Sergei Rachmaninoff ● Piano Concerto No. 1
Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky ● Symphony No. 1, “Winterdreams”
