Le Poème de l’extase

Rachmaninoff

Piano Concerto No. 3

Approx. 90 Minute Performance

Oft mentioned in the same breath as composer/performer geniuses Liszt and Scriabin, the astonishing young virtuoso Daniil Trifonov, Gramophone’s 2016 Artist of the Year, will transport us to another dimension with his interpretation of perhaps the most famous composer/pianist of all: Rachmaninoff. Maestro Tausk and the VSO set the scene with Russian mystical madman Alexander Scriabin’s ethereal Poème de l’extase (Poem of Ecstasy).

Please join us at 7:00PM for a pre-concert talk with Maestro Otto Tausk.

This concert is part of the 2019-2020 Masterworks Diamond series.
