Music Worceste presents Ilya Yakushev with The New Haven Symphony Orchestra
May 17, 2014
With a program that the New Haven Symphony Orchestra is calling "Rachmaninov Fantastique" - bringing two colossal works together for a blockbuster finale to the Music Worcester orchestra season, we welcome the NHSO to Worcester! What better way to celebrate Music Worcester's incredible history of bringing great orchestra repertoire to Worcester than this?
The "Rach Two", which will feature extraordinary pianist Ilya Yakushev in his return to the Music Worcester stage, marries musical subtlety and piano pyrotechnics. Symphonie fantastique was fueled by Berlioz’s obsession with an Irish actress and hurtles from moments of tenderness to tantrums, from visions of suicide to ecstasy. The orchestra's virtuosity will be on full display for this piece.
