Marin Alsop, conductor Rachmaninoff: Symphony No. 3 Described as a “six-and-a-half-foot scowl” by his contemporary Stravinsky, Sergei Rachmaninoff was not what most would call a happy man. Part of that legendary sour outlook came from a life in exile after he and his family left Bolshevik Russia. Still, a connection to his homeland runs through much of his music, and his third symphony is filled with that Russian heritage, love and longing. It's fun. It's laid back. It's Off the Cuff. The story meets the score in our Centennial Off the Cuff series. Explore the backstory on classical music's greatest works and discover their secrets, scandals and twists. This unique series engages you in an entertaining and informative format, including a thrilling performance of the music.
