Houston Symphony presents Rachmaninoff’s The Bells
Jingling sleigh bells, reverent wedding bells, thunderous alarm bells and mournful iron bells - these are the sonic atmospheres traversed in Rachmaninoff’s spectacular choral symphony, which draws as its text the poetry of Edgar Allan Poe. Spanish sensation Javier Perianes dazzles in Saint-Saëns’ sensuous and exotic “Egyptian” concerto. To start, step inside the haunting, visionary world of America’s greatest musical pioneer and prophet, Charles Ives.
Andrés Orozco-Estrada will be the Music Director of this event.
