- 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 it’s so evocative. Internationally acclaimed pianist Andrew Tyson joins New Jersey Festival Orchestra to present the thrilling centerpiece of the program: Rachmaninoff’s unassailable epic Concerto No. 2., surely one of the most powerful works in the entire piano repertoire.
