At a Glance

Xian Zhang is widely recognized for her visionary programming and conducting. True to form, she begins her Orchestra Hall program with Anna Clyne’s tender memorial to her mother, Within Her Arms, and concludes with music of heroines from fairy tale and history. The centerpiece: Kirill Gerstein completes our 2020 Rachmaninoff piano-and-orchestra cycle with the most sumptuous and daunting of Rachmaninoff’s concertos.

Did You Know?

  • Anna Clyne’s music has become a favorite for Minnesota Orchestra programs, and the Grammy-nominated English composer is a 2006 alumna of the Orchestra’s Composer Institute.
  • Rachmaninoff and his family fled Russia after the Russian Revolution in 1918 and he spent the last 25 years of his life living and composing in the United States.
  • One of Tchaikovsky’s most important relationships was with a Russian business woman and arts patron, Nadezhda von Meck. Her well-known 13-year support came with the strict stipulation that they never meet.
