This concert is full of musical tales to enchant the concert hall.
Iranian composer Behzad Ranjbaran’s Persian Trilogy is inspired by the stories of the Persian epic poem the Shahnameh and the Seven Passages for Orchestra reflect seven epic trials of the poem’s hero, Rostam. Pianist Zhang Zuo will be the guide through the expansive moods and dazzling technical requirements of Rachmaninoff’s spectacular Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini and we end the evening in St. Petersburg to follow the tale of Petrushka, the unhappy marionette in love with a ballerina.
