Russian pianist Ilya Yakushev joins conductor William Boughton and the New Haven Symphony Orchestra for an evening of Rachmaninov Fantastique. On the program will be two of classical music's most popular pieces. Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No. 2 combines musical subtlety with piano pyrotechnics, and has been frequently used in film scores. 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. There's a pre-concert lecture one hour before the show. Learn More
