Rachmaninoff’s Rhapsody (Canceled)

After evaluating guidance and information shared by Governor Brown and state health officials in regards to large gatherings of people in public spaces, Oregon Symphony concerts scheduled through December 31, 2020, in Portland and Salem are canceled. Oregon Symphony plans to resume live performances in January 2021.  View full details

The always stunning Inon Barnatan stars in Rachmaninoff’s fiendishly challenging Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, a cornerstone of the repertoire since its 1934 premiere. Conductor David Danzmayr continues the Russian theme with Sergei Prokofiev’s sparkling final symphony and imaginative music by the Soviet-born Elena Kats-Chernin, now one of Australia’s top composers.
