Based on a catchy little tune by Paganini, Rachmaninoff’s diabolically difficult Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini blends explosive piano feats with melodies that melt the heart. And Music Director Juraj Valčuha leads music sprinkled in fairy tale magic: swim through the wonders of Liadov’s Enchanted Lake, then dive under the sea with Zemlinsky’s lavishly romantic The Mermaid, based on Hans Christian Andersen’s “Little Mermaid” story. Pianist Kirill Gerstein will be featured in the concert.
