Season Finale: Yale Philharmonia plays Rachmaninoff, Strauss, Ravel
In its final concert of the season, the Yale Philharmonia will perform three colorful and popular works from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries on Friday, May 1 at 8 pm in Woolsey Hall.
Conducting fellow Julian Pellicano will lead the orchestra in Richard Strauss’s rollicking Till Eulenspiegel’s Merry Pranks, a tone poem from 1907. Then the orchestra’s music director, Shinik Hahm, will take the podium for the rest of the evening. Under his direction, Latvian pianist Reinis Zarins, a winner of the 2008 Woolsey Hall Concerto Competition, will perform the solo in Maurice Ravel’s Piano Concerto for the Left Hand.
The evening culminates in Rachmaninoff’s monumental Symphony No. 2 in E minor.
