Rachmaninoff’s The Bells

May 9, 2019 - May 12, 2019

About this concert: Edgar Allan Poe’s words meet the lavish opulence of Rachmaninoff in this powerful choral symphony, which Rachmaninoff himself cited as his favorite creation. The vibrant, jazzy rhythms of Gershwin and the blistering energy of Prokofiev are on full display as International Tchaikovsky Competition Silver Medalist George Li brings his “staggering technical prowess” (Washington Post) to Houston. To start, step inside the haunting, visionary world of America’s greatest musical pioneer and prophet as Andrés’ season-long exploration of Charles Ives’ Fourth Symphony continues.

Pre-Concert Activities: Attend the Prelude pre-concert discussion, held 45 minutes prior to each Classical concert. Prelude is led by our Musical Ambassador Carlos Andrés Botero, and sometimes features guest artists or orchestra members.
