False Starts

From David Amado:

Our third Classics concert features two works which have become concert standards after difficult premiers. Rachmaninoff’s expansive and dramatic (and rarely performed) First Symphony receives its Delaware premier 123 years after its disastrously under-rehearsed first performance. Not yet the full-fledged post-Romantic we associate with his later works, this Symphony shows Rachmaninoff as the undisputed heir to the Russian symphonic spirit. French cellist Camille Thomas joins the DSO for Elgar’s Cello Concerto—a contemplative, probing, deeply personal, and private work from the end of Elgar’s career. It synthesizes a lifetime of ideas into a touching and personal work— initially a flop, only to be made popular, and a staple of the repertoire, years after its composition by cellist Jacqueline du Pre in the 1960s. The first half opens with Borodin’s overture to Prince Igor which balances pathos, pomp, and electric energy.

Pre-concert discussion begins at 6:30.

Music: Classical / Opera Music Northern Delaware
