Rachmaninoff’s Rhapsody (Canceled)

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.
