Houston Symphony presents Tchaikovsky & Rachmaninoff
Rachmaninoff’s piano music speaks straight to the heart. Pianist extraordinaire Simon Trpčeski shines in the composer’s shimmering final concerto. Composed during a carefree summer in the Russian countryside, Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 3 features some of his sunniest and most delightful music. The program kicks off with a suite from Shostakovich’s ballet about a Soviet soccer team abroad, a madcap romp that includes a delightfully offbeat polka and the popular song “Tea for Two.”
Kazushi Ono will be the conductor of this event.
