2021/2022 Season Finale Concert

Rimsky-Korsakov:  Scheherazade, Op. 35

Rachmaninoff:  Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor, Op. 18

Jon Nakamatsu, piano

The season concludes with Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade, a vivid orchestral work inspired by the tales of the Arabian Nights. Jon Nakamatsu, 1997 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition Gold Medalist performs Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2, a work that marked the composer’s triumphant recovery from the disastrous premiere of his First Symphony. While some elements are familiar thanks to movie soundtracks and pop songs, the Concerto as a whole is a testament to Rachmaninoff’s brilliance as a composer and pianist.
