Rachmaninoff Piano Concertos



Location: Online, Glen Ellyn, IL 60137
Start Date/Time: April 17, 2021 - 7:30 p.m.
End Date/Time: June 15, 2021

New Philharmonic welcomes back featured pianist Wael Farouk, who has performed on five continents in such venues as the White Hall in St. Petersburg, Schumann’s house in Leipzig, and Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall in New York, where his solo debut performance in 2013 was described as “absolutely masterful.” He was last seen at the MAC in Beethoven: Five Piano Concertos | One Pianist last season when he performed all five Beethoven Piano Concertos in one evening with New Philharmonic. Returning for another adventurous feat, he will be performing Rachmanioff’s Concerto 1 in F-sharp minor, Concerto 2 in C minor and Concerto 3 in D-minor. Concerto 1 was actually Rachmanioff’s second attempt at a piano concerto (and is very different from his later works), Concerto 2 is one of his most enduring works, and Concerto 3 builds to what has been described as the Everest of piano concertos. When you purchase a ticket, you’ll receive a confirmation email with a link to access the show online. Premiers April 17 at 7:30 p.m. On-demand through June 15. $40.
