Stephen Hough performs Rachmaninoff
Most pianists regard and even fear Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 3 as the most difficult in the repertoire, but Stephen Hough—who Music Director Thierry Fischer praises as “the perfect soloist”—is sure to take on the challenge with grace. Familiar music from Wagner’s Ring cycle is full of stirring, operatic drama and Unsuk Chin’s Chóros Chordón is a magical work evoking the cosmos.
Join us for a pre-concert chat about the evening’s program with Vice President of Artistic Planning Bob Neu, as well as guest artists and musicians from our orchestra, starting 45 minutes before the concert begins.
