Hello December, Hello Russia!
As Peter and I rehearse Rachmaninoff for this Friday's Odyssey performance, we are discovering there are several quotes in his Symphony Dances. Spotted are obvious 'Dies Irae' (Day of Wrath), Rachmaninoff's own Piano Concerto No. 3 (2 passages), Mussorgsky's Catacombs, and I am 90% convinced Shostakovich - just haven't been able to figure out what yet. Peter spotted Ravel's Scarbo opening LH tonight. Join us to listen to this maddening ending to the last movement - LIVE! The concert is this Friday, December 4 at 7pm, First Baptist Church.
