Described as an “Everest for pianists,” Rachmaninoff’s Third Piano Concerto is adored by audiences alike for its unabashedly lush score flowing with melodies. The Guardian declares that “Rachmaninov just doesn’t get any better than this” with Russian pianist Nicolai Lugansky. And the orchestra will astonish in Bartók’s Concerto for Orchestra, a work almost cinematic in scope showcasing the talent and unique colors of the orchestra.
