Spring 2019: Saint-Saëns & Rachmaninoff

Monday, February 4, 2019 at 7:00PM

NCPA Jamshed Bhabha Theatre

Symphony Orchestra of India
Weber: Overture to Oberon
Saint-Saëns: Violin Concerto No. 3 in B minor, Op. 61
Rachmaninoff: Symphony No. 2 in E minor, Op. 27

 
Martyn Brabbins is Music Director of the English National Opera (ENO) and the Huddersfield Choral Society. This programme will feature Brabbins leading Weber’s overture to Oberon, or The Elf King’s Oath and Saint-Saëns’ Violin Concerto No. 3 with SOI Music Director and renowned violin virtuoso Marat Bisengaliev as the soloist. To end the evening, Brabbins will conduct Rachmaninoff’s Symphony No. 2. After his First Symphony received harsh criticisms, Rachmaninoff began to doubt his symphonic writing, despite the success of his piano concerti. Nonetheless, he pushed himself to complete the work and it premiered to great acclaim, earning him a Glinka prize. Alongside his piano concerti, the Second Symphony is one of Rachmaninoff’s best known works today.
 
 
Box Office opens 12th December for Benefactors/Friends of the SOI, 15th December for NCPA members and 18th December for the public.
