Rachmaninoff's Thirds

Rachmaninoff’s third piano concerto is a gorgeous but grueling test of a soloists’ mettle. Don’t miss superstar pianist Joyce Yang — who rose to stardom when she took silver in the 2005 Van Cliburn Competition — takes on this mammoth concerto before the FWSO turns to the Russian giant’s celebrated Symphony No. 3, a work Rachmaninoff himself called one of his finest creations. Distinguished conductor Edo de Waart leads this exceptional concert.

A ferocious cadenza early in Rachmaninoff's third piano concerto separates the students from the masters in this all-Rachmaninoff program that also include the sublime Symphony No. 3.
