ABOUT THIS EVENT
- Rachmaninoff's final work, Symphonic Dances, is a romantic Russian masterpiece that combines rich lyricism with orchestral color.
- Prokofiev's warm and vivid Third Piano Concerto complements these lush sounds, with pianist Lukáš Vondráček returning to the Charlotte stage.
- An orchestral "foxtrot" from contemporary composer John Adams rounds out this evening of dances.
