STRAVINSKY: Ode, RACHMANINOFF: Piano Concerto No. 3, TCHAIKOVSKY: Symphony No. 4, David Amado: conducting, and Sergei Babayan: piano.

The series finale will feature an all-Russian program filled with bravura. Stravinsky’s brittle, ascetic Ode—music once destined for an Orson Welles film—will be balanced by the ripe romanticism of Rachmaninoff’s Third Piano Concerto (popularized in the movie, “Shine”), and the evergreen Fourth Symphony by Tchaikovsky. Brought to life by Russian pianist Sergei Babayan, the Rachmaninoff is at turns a wistful, brilliant and passionate last breath of the waning Romantic Era. Tchaikovsky’s Fourth Symphony, on the other hand, is the Romantic Era’s standard-bearer—dramatic, volatile, tender, languid, and in the end, triumphant.
