Jan 20, 2018 to Jan 27, 2018
Back-to-back concerts by the Sacramento Philharmonic will feature Russian classics in the masterful hands of SoCal pianist Andrew von Oeyen. Case Scaglione, assistant conductor of the New York Philharmonic, will conduct the Jan. 20 program, which will include Modest Mussorgsky’s frantic and bombastic Night on Bald Mountain, best known from the Disney classic Fantasia; Tchaikovsky’s three-movement Piano Concerto No. 1, which sandwiches a light, unhurried second section between more powerful allegros; and Rachmaninoff’s Symphonic Dances, the composer’s last work before his death in 1943. Taiwanese conductor Mei-Ann Chen will maestro the Jan. 27 concert, which will feature the energetic overture to Mikhail Glinka’s five-act opera Ruslan and Ludmilla; Rachmaninoff’s popular yet challenging Piano Concerto No. 3; and Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition, a memorial to the death of his artist friend Viktor Hartmann that will present an exhibition of the painter’s work, including The Old Castle and The Great Gate of Kiev.
