MSO: Rachmaninoff & Sibelius
November 11 & 12, 2022 at 7:30 pm
Gallo Center for the Arts
Featuring: Nicholas Hersh, conductor & George Li, piano
Conductor Nicholas Hersh will lead the MSO for the Rachmaninoff & Sibelius concerts. This program gives us the opportunity to hear Hersh’s arrangement of the second movement of Schubert’s famous string quartet, Death and the Maiden. Then pianist George Li will be featured on Rachmaninoff’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini and the program will finish with Sibelius’ Symphony No. 5. This breathtaking beauty captures 16 soaring swans when the strings mimic the fluttering of wings and a glorious, arching theme played by the French horns.
