First Orchestra Season 2018
The Russian composer´s spectacular Symphonic Dances finalize the OFJ´s Rachmaninov Symphonic Cycle in this first 2018 orchestra season. Written in 1940 after a long lapse of silence, Symphonic Dances is Rachmaninov´s final work and--as the composer perhaps intuited this--he wrote a note in the manuscript: "I believe I have put the last of my energy into this work. I thank thee, Lord".
La OFJ once again welcomes young virtuoso Abdiel Vázquez, a native of Monterrey, N.L., Mexico, who will delight us with his version of the renowned First Concerto for Piano and Orchestra by Piotr Ilich Tchaikovsky. Marco Parisotto will direct this concluding program of the First 2018 Orchestra season on the 22nd and 25th of March.
