Maestro Francis conducts the sumptuous score with electrifying pianist Joyce Yang to kick off TFO’s mini festival celebrating 150 years of Rachmaninoff. The maestro calls Rachmaninoff’s concertos some of the most jaw-dropping feats of human achievement: “To be truly captivated, you must see them performed LIVE.” The soul of the rest of the program is in the swans. Sibelius sends off his Symphony No. 5 with the soaring “swan theme” in the finale, while the English horn (TFO’s Jeffrey Stephenson) is the elegant voice of his Swan of Tuonela.PRE-CONCERT CONVERSATIONS: Get the real story behind the composers and their music, straight from the conductor and guest soloists.
