Then & Now 3/8: Rachmaninoff

Then & Now 3/8:  Rachmaninoff

On this date in 1896, Rachmaninoff’s symphonic fantasy "The Rock," had its premiere in Moscow.

You can hear a much more familiar Rachmaninoff piece later tonight as we present our Thursday Masterwork with the Florida Orchestra.  You’ll hear the Rachmaninoff Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini on a concert recorded just a couple of weeks ago.  Also featured, the Symphony No. 9 “From the New World”.  Michael Francis conducts the Florida Orchestra tonight at 7:00 on Classical WSMR 89.1 & 103.9.
