SMETANA "The Moldau" from Má vlast
RACHMANINOFF Piano Concerto No.2
RIMSKY KORSAKOV Scheherazade

 

The Slavic influence in music, whether full-blooded Russian or Central European in nature, has captivated audiences with its brooding, vivid, romanticism. From the roaring Moldau River to the seductive mystique of Scheherazade herself, Slavic music lends itself to stories, simply because its so evocative. Internationally acclaimed pianist Andrew Tyson joins NJFO to present the thrilling centerpiece of the program: Rachmaninoff's unassailably epic Concerto No. 2., surely one of the most powerful works in the entire piano repertoire.
