Rachmaninoff’s Second Concerto

    Concert Details

    He was plagued by self-doubt. And had abandoned his music. But when inspired to compose again, Sergei Rachmaninoff wrote the music that would make him immortal. Boris Giltburg, the Moscow-born Israeli virtuoso plays the Second Piano Concerto. “His vision will place him among the truly memorable Rachmaninoff interpreters, an elect including Horowitz, Richter, and Cliburn,” raves Gramophone. And Ken-David Masur conducts Brahms’s poetic Symphony No. 2.


    The MSO Steinway piano was made possible through a generous gift from Michael & Jeanne Schmitz
