We honor the composer with perhaps the closest ties to The Philadelphia Orchestra, presenting all four of Rachmaninoff’s piano concertos, with two dynamic and contrasting soloists: the renowned Russian Nikolai Lugansky (Concertos 2 and 3) and the Chinese phenom and Curtis-trained Haochen Zhang (Concertos 1 and 4). For good measure, Lugansky will also solo in the gorgeous Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini. Principal Guest Conductor Stéphane Denève also leads the Orchestra in the Symphonic Dances. In a perfect world you’ll hear all three concerts and all four concertos. Additional Rachmaninoff Festival events surrounding the concerts will be unveiled in 2017. Join us for these unforgettable nights and revel in the heavenly Philadelphia Sound!
