Event Description

Rachmaninoff died in Beverly Hills—a far cry from the imperial Russia of his youth. Bolshevism, world war, geopolitical upheaval, and iconoclasm produced a turbulent space through which he carved his path: Romantic, melodic, and sophisticated. Hear the Russian National Orchestra under Mikhail Pletnev in Rachmaninoff’s fiery Symphonic Dances, as well as the towering Second Piano Concerto with the American virtuoso George Li.
