Program Notes & Works
Overture to Prince Igor
When Alexander Borodin died suddenly at age 53, his historical opera Prince Igor remained far from finished. Almost immediately, his friends Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov and Alexander Glazunov began fleshing it out.
Piano Concerto No. 3
For pianists, Rachmaninoff’s Third Piano Concerto stands as the ultimate challenge—the Mt. Everest of the concerto repertoire.
Suite from Romeo and Juliet
Romeo and Juliet represents a giant step forward in Prokofiev’s evolution as a ballet composer, a remarkable synthesis of the "five lines" of his musical personality.
