T&N 3/20: Florida Orchestra Rockin' Out!

Sergei Rachmaninoff

On this date in 1873, the great composer and pianist Sergei Rachmaninoff was born.  This date also saw the premiere of his symphonic fantasy "The Rock".

The Florida Orchestra just announced its lineup for next year, and the masterworks season will include plenty of Rachmaninoff.  This November you’ll be treated to a performance of the Piano Concerto No. 4.  Then just a month later, the orchestra will play the beautiful Symphony No. 2.  And if that’s not enough Rachmaninoff for you, there’s the famous Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini on the schedule for next February on a concert featuring Dvorak’s New World Symphony.  Details on the Florida Orchestra’s 2017-18 season are online at www.floridaorchestra.org
