SOPHIA JANI Orchestra Work | World Premiere
RACHMANINOFF Piano Concerto No. 3
ARLENE SIERRA Kiskadee | Co-commission
STRAUSS Till Eulenspiegel’s Merry Pranks

Arguably one of the hardest-to-master piano concertos, Rachmaninoff’s Third starts quietly, then unleashes an astonishing torrent of notes and hurtles to a jaw-dropping conclusion. In-between you’ll hear echoes of Slavic melancholy, lush themes and page upon page of passionate and virtuosic music-making.  The delightful Till Eulenspiegel’s Merry Pranks about the mischief-maker we can’t help but like, despite — or because of — the tricks he plays on deserving victims. Rounding out the evening are DSO-commissioned works by two eminent female composers, Sophia Jani, the DSO’s Composer-in-Residence and American Arlene Sierra. 

Kiskadee was commissioned by the League of American Orchestras with the generous support of the Virginia B. Toulmin Foundation
