- Event Details
We end this season’s Classical Series with a program of firsts. Performed by Gilles Vonsattel, Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No. 1 was penned when the pianist-composer was only a teenager, long before the more often played Second and Third concertos, and is based loosely on the great concerto by Grieg. Few debuts have made quite the impression given by Mahler’s ambitious Symphony No. 1, sometimes called the “Titan,” which despite many later successes became the original work most frequently conducted by the composer throughout his career.
