Rachmaninoff & Brahms
Brahms – Symphony No. 4
Rachmaninoff – Piano Concerto No. 3
ESO audience favorite, pianist Natasha Paremski, returns to perform Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 3, known as one of the most technically challenging piano concertos in the standard classical repertoire and featured in the major motion picture, Shine. The program also holds Brahms’ final symphony, No. 4, which premiered in 1885 with Brahms himself conducting. Rock music aficionados will recognize elements of the symphony from the instrumental “Cans and Brahms” on the 1971 Yes album Fragile.
