Rachmaninoff’s Symphonic Dances, a three-movement
orchestral suite, combines energetic, rhythmic sections
with some of the composer’s lushest melodies. The
remarkable Sinfonia da Requiem, considered one of
Britten’s greatest orchestral scores, sets the stage for
Ravel’s G Major Piano Concerto, a sparkling tour de force
of perpetual motion—fitting music for Ingrid Fliter,
described by the LA Times as “a pianistic force of nature.” British conductor Justin Brown makes his CSO debut.
