Rachmaninov’s final symphony concludes a concert that includes Franz Schreker’s interlude from his opera Der ferne Klang and a brand new work by Nicola LeFanu.
Nicola LeFanu will unveil her new RPS commission, a work for soprano and orchestra, with conductor Ilan Volkov on the podium. Opera composer Schreker’s beautiful Nachtstück opens the evening that closes with Rachmaninov’s last symphony, which pays homage to the composer’s Russian heritage.
