Categories: Concert
 

Daniel Meyer conducts a program of Russian masterpieces featuring piano virtuoso Orion Weiss performing Rachmaninoff’s monumental Piano Concerto No. 3. Glinka’s heroic Russlan and Ludmilla Overture is an exuberant introduction to the concert alongside our talented young WYSO musicians. The concert concludes with Tchaikovsky’s folk song-inspired Symphony No. 2 “Little Russian.”

“When you’re named after one of the biggest constellations in the night sky, the pressure is on to display a little star power — and the young pianist Orion Weiss did exactly that…” – The Washington Post

One of the most sought-after soloists in his generation of young American musicians, the pianist Orion Weiss has performed with the major American orchestras, including the Chicago Symphony, Boston Symphony, Los Angeles Philharmonic, and New York Philharmonic. His deeply felt and exceptionally crafted performances go far beyond his technical mastery and have won him worldwide acclaim.
