Rachmaninoff Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini with Joyce Yang

Nov 20, 2020 - Nov 22, 2020


Theme and variation are at the forefront of this convivial concert beginning with Hindemith's Symphonic Metamorphosis, a seminal influencer of Romanticism. Pianist Joyce Yang, whose playing was dubbed "vivid and beautiful" by The New York Times, makes her much-anticipated return to Boettcher Concert Hall as featured soloist on Rachmaninoff's Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini while Tchaikovsky's romantic "Little Russian" Symphony incorporates variations of three Ukrainian folk songs in an unreservedly joyous finale, interpreted and conducted by Music Director Brett Mitchell.
