BSO Presents Rachmaninoff Rhapsody

The final concert of the season includes Rachmaninoff’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini featuring Italian pianist Beatrice Rana, whose playing is noted by The London Times as having “a kind of Orphic seductiveness, a transcendent lightness of touch.” The rhapsody has a historical connection to the region, as it was premiered by Rachmaninoff himself at the Lyric Opera House in Baltimore. Closing the program, James Conlon leads the orchestra in a moving performance of Shostakovich’s dramatic “Leningrad” Symphony in which dueling brass sections represent the competing armies during the siege of Leningrad.

This concert repeats on Sat., June 18 at 8 PM at The Music Center at Strathmore in North Bethesda and Sun., June 19 at 3 PM at the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall in Baltimore. For tickets visit:
