ANDREW LITTON conducts
STEPHEN HOUGH piano
TCHAIKOVSKY Piano Concerto No. 1
RACHMANINOFF Symphony No. 2
Former DSO Music Director Andrew Litton and pianist Stephen Hough, who recorded the entire series of the Rachmaninoff Piano Concertos with the DSO, reunite at the Meyerson this season. Maestro Litton (DSO Music Director 1994-2006) conducts Rachmaninoff’s Second Symphony, a romantic orchestral juggernaut containing suspenseful melodic lyricism, a vibrant-scherzo, tear-jerking slow movement and a festive finale of epic proportion.
We open the performance of All-Russian repertoire with pianist Stephen Hough, who ‚Äúcan power through man-eating Liszt and Tchaikovsky concerti with the best of them, but for Hough, God is mostly in the details ‚Äď the beautifully articulated inner voices, the crystalline clarity of lyrical passages, the precision of the pedal ‚Ä¶ he radiates a higher sense of purpose.‚ÄĚ – Vanity Fair
