Rachmaninov Symphony No.2
The MSO returns to the stage (again) after lockdown with a thrilling performance of Rachmaninov’s expansive Symphony No.2. From the depths of Rachmaninov’s depression over the failure of his First Symphony, his Second is an artistic triumph. Music full of light and shade, passion, and affect, this is one of the great Romantic symphonies, compellingly led by Dutch-Maltese conductor Lawrence Renes. ⋆ ⋆ ⋆ ⋆ Limelight FEATURING Lawrence Renes, conductor PROGRAM RACHMANINOV Symphony No.2
