Program Notes/What’s interesting about this concert:

Thrilling young conductor Karina Canellakis delivers edge-of-your-seat performances.

Rachmaninoff's fiendishly difficult Third Piano Concerto (featured in the movie Shine) is a high-wire act for the soloist, Kirill Gerstein. He shows how virtuosity and soulfulness can go hand in hand" (Chicago Sun Times).

Elgar’s In the South takes the listener on holiday, evoking coastal landscapes of the Italian Riviera.
