Symphony No. 2
Marking his 25th season as artistic director and principal
conductor, Yuri Temirkanov and the St. Petersburg
Philharmonic present an all-Russian program with
Rachmaninov’s Symphony No. 2, considered to be among the
composer’s finest works and featuring one of his most luscious
melodies. Prokofiev’s Second Violin Concerto starts simply
with a hauntingly beautiful melody in the solo violin played
here by dynamic newcomer Vilde Frang, and concludes with
a rousing Spanish dance, complete with castanets.

Marcelo Lehninger and CSO Solti Apprentice Matthew Aucoin
lead a program of works by Ravel and Stravinsky, selected by
Pierre Boulez. Ravel’s vivid tone paintings evoke stormy seas
and a jester’s bittersweet serenade. These large orchestral
canvases are juxtaposed with Stravinsky’s charming and witty
miniatures. The program will also feature video commentary
by Pierre Boulez explaining how he structured these programs.
Prepare for an evening that will surprise and delight the ear.
