Virtual New Philharmonic - Rachmaninoff: 3 Piano Concertos

Virtual New Philharmonic - Rachmaninoff: 3 Piano Concertos

Saturday, 17 April, 2021

Location: Online/Webinar

Description:

A once-in-a-lifetime, ground-breaking concert, featuring international pianist Wael Farouk and New Philharmonic orchestra with Maestro Kirk Muspratt performing Rachmaninoff’s Concerto 1 in F-sharp minor, Concerto 2 in C minor and Concerto 3 in D-minor. These three pieces are so challenging that they have never been performed in one concert before by a single pianist.

Concerto 1 in F-sharp minor, was actually Rachmaninoff’s second attempt at a piano concerto (and is very different from his later works). Concerto 2 is one of his most enduring works, and Concerto 3 builds to what has been described as the Mt. Everest of concertos requiring a pianist of the highest ability, strength and emotion to perform.

Enjoy this streamed concert premiering April 17 and available on-demand through June 15. 

Cost:

$40 per household
