Gemma New Conducts Rachmaninoff’s Symphonic Dances

March 6-8
Friday and Saturday at 7:30 pm and Sunday at 2:30 pm

There’s much to savor in Rachmaninoff’s stirring Symphonic Dances: an alto saxophone and pulsating percussion in the first; a dark, eerie waltz in the second; and Russian Orthodox chants, tubular bells and the composer’s go-to Dies irae in the last. Garrick Ohlsson’s virtuosity is on full display in Barber’s breathtaking Piano Concerto, praised at its premiere as “the birth of an American classic…a big, splashy, old-fashioned concerto.”
