RACHMANINOFF’S SECOND SYMPHONY
Here’s an inspired pairing of “twos!” Energetic conductor König is known for his “huge musicality,” and Biss, whom The Guardian calls “a truly world-class pianist,” specializes in Beethoven. Their collaboration on Beethoven’s playful Second Piano Concerto is sure to enchant. Rachmaninoff’s epic Second Symphony, with its particularly gorgeous slow movement, is one of the composer’s finest achievements.
