Rach Your Ears Off
On Thursday, the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and 23-year-old piano phenom Anna Fedorova perform Rachmaninoff’s gorgeous and seductive “Second Piano Concerto.” Fedorova was born in Kiev, Ukraine, and gave her first public recital at age 6. Since then she has been wowing audiences in the world’s greatest concert halls with passionate, virtuosic playing. This lush, romantic music by one of Russia’s most famous pianist/composers is a gorgeous and heart-wrenching duet for piano and orchestra. Paul Phillips, beloved music director of Southern Methodist University’s Meadows Symphony, guest conducts a program that also features music by another Russian composer, Dmitri Shostakovich, and American composer Aaron Copland’s patriotic “Symphony Number Three.” Repeat performances will occur Friday and Saturday. All start at 8 p.m. at the Meyerson Symphony Center, 2301 Flora St. Tickets range from $38 to $264 and can be purchased by calling the box office at 214-692-0203 or at dallassymphony.com.
Thu., March 20, 8 p.m.; Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sat., March 22, 8 p.m. Starts: March 20. Continues through March 22, 2014
