Pre-Concert Chat 4:30pm Rimsky Korsakov The Snow Maiden (Snegourotchka) Suite Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No. 2 in C Minor Svetlana Smolina, piano Nielsen Symphony No. 5, Op. 50 Rimsky Korsakovs The Snow Maiden Suite opens this energetic and passionate program. An indefatigable reviser and arranger, he regarded it as my best work, not only that but perhaps, on the whole, the best of all contemporary operas. Internationally acclaimed pianist Svetlana Smolina once again joins the Symphony from her world tour to perform Rachmaninovs Piano Concerto No. 2. As quoted in the Los Angeles Times, Smolinas defining of the lyrical aspects in the music she played made her performance cherishable Nielsens 5th Symphony is considered his best work in this form. The music itself clearly defines a drama of energy and release, obsession and insistence. This is the first time the SFSO has performed a Nielsen Symphony.
