SERGEI RACHMANINOFF Symphonic Dances
Three composer/pianists found their own paths to inspiration. Rachmaninoff heard music in his very being, saying “no conscious effort has been made to be original…I write down the music I hear within me.” His last major work is a thrilling showpiece for the SLSO.
