Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2



It’s hard to believe that Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No.2 was the product of low self-esteem and writer’s block. But as Rachmaninoff confronted his problems the concerto became confident and lyrical. One of Rachmaninoff's most enduringly popular works, it established his fame as a concerto composer. Also on the program is Andrew Norman’s epic, highly energetic Play, a cycle of pieces that explore ideas of choice, chance, free will, and control. Play won the prestigious 2016 Grawemeyer Award for Music Composition and Norman was named the Musical America’s 2017 Composer of the Year.
