Classics Series Concert 5:
STRAVINSKY: Ode
RACHMANINOFF: Piano Concerto No. 3
TCHAIKOVSKY: Symphony No. 4

David Amado, conducting and Sergei Babayan, piano.

Maestro Amado comments: 
The series finale will take place May 12, 2017 and feature an all-Russian program filled with bravura. Stravinsky’s brittle, ascetic Ode—music once destined for an Orson Welles film—will be balanced by the ripe romanticism of Rachmaninoff’s Third Piano Concerto (popularized in the movie, “Shine”), and the evergreen Fourth Symphony by Tchaikovsky. Amado comments on the program, “Brought to life by Russian pianist Sergei Babayan, the Rachmaninoff is at turns a wistful, brilliant and passionate last breath of the waning Romantic Era. Tchaikovsky’s Fourth Symphony, on the other hand, is the Romantic Era’s standard-bearer—dramatic, volatile, tender, languid, and in the end, triumphant.”
