At a Glance

Kirill Gerstein brings his monster talent back to our stage to continue the Rachmaninoff cycle of all of the Russian master’s gorgeous piano-and-orchestra pieces during 2020. This all-Russian program begins with an exciting evocation of Icarus, the mythological character who flew too close to the sun. And we close with a stunning symphony by 19-year-old Shostakovich.

Artists

Did You Know?

  • In the spirit of giving the people what they want, Sergei Rachmaninoff rewrote his Fourth Piano Concerto twice. The third version (published about 15 years after the first) is what’s generally performed today.
  • Lera Auerbach was born in Soviet Russia in 1973 and began composing when she was just four years old, and has worked to develop a very powerful, visceral and captivating composition style.
  • Talk about an over-achiever: Dmitri Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 1 was a music conservatory graduation project when the composer was just 19 years old.
  • Kirill Gerstein and the Minnesota Orchestra continue our mini-Rachmaninoff project, performing all four of Rachmaninoff’s piano concertos. Gerstein will visit in December to perform the Piano Concerto No. 3.
