6:00 pm

Roberto Minczuk Music Director
Anna Dmytrenko piano

Prokofiev Scythian Suite
Rachmaninoff Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini
Stravinsky The Rite of Spring

Tonight, we celebrate the dance! The NMPhil opens the concert with the Scythian Suite of Prokofiev, whose music was written and, notably, rejected for a Diaghilev-commissioned ballet. Next up, we welcome back 2016 Olga Kern International Piano Competition second-prize winner Anna Dmytrenko for an exciting performance of Rachmaninoff’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, a work used in many 20th-century ballets. And then, music from the ballet to end all ballets: The Rite of Spring. Music Director Roberto Minczuk conducts.

The event is finished.
