Rachmaninoff and Stravinsky

Cristian Măcelaru, conductor
Simon Trpčeski, piano

JESSIE MONTGOMERY Snapshots (BSO co-commission)
RACHMANINOFF Piano Concerto No. 1
STRAVINSKY Symphony in C
ENESCU Romanian Rhapsody No. 1

Cristian Măcelaru brings Romanian flair to music from his homeland and beyond. Simon Trpčeski, the Macedonian pianist favored for “his combination of deft, subtle musicianship allied with virtually infallible fingers” (The Washington Post), romps through Rachmaninoff’s hearty First Piano Concerto. Superstar American composer Jessie Montgomery offers alluring Snapshots in a score co-commissioned by the BSO, and Stravinsky appears in full neoclassical regalia with the debonair Symphony in C. Capped by Enescu’s intoxicating Romanian Rhapsody, complete with local drinking songs, it will leave you wanting to raise a glass to Măcelaru and company to shout — as Romanians do — “Noroc!”
