The Philadelphia Orchestra
Yannick Nézet-Séguin, Music Director and Conductor
Beatrice Rana, Piano
STRAVINSKY Funeral Song
PROKOFIEV Piano Concerto No. 3
RACHMANINOFF Symphony No. 1
Two “lost” works bookend this all-Russian program. Stravinsky’s recently discovered Funeral Song is a memorial to his tutor Rimsky-Korsakov, drawing on the elder composer’s harmonic style while also looking ahead to Stravinsky’s own early ballet scores. There’s also Rachmaninoff’s symphony, a notorious disaster at its 1897 premiere, which was never performed again in the composer’s lifetime. It is now justly recognized for its youthful Romantic fervor and driving ferocity. The Stravinsky and Rachmaninoff works frame Prokofiev’s most popular concerto, beloved for its biting wit, romantic interludes, and fiery solo part, played here by Beatrice Rana, called one of “the most faultless of young pianists today” (The Washington Post).
