Omaha Symphony: Rachmaninoff's Symphonic Dances


Thomas Wilkins, conductor
Markus Groh, piano

ROZSA: Madame Bovary Waltz
BRAHMS: Piano Concerto No. 1
RACHMANINOFF: Symphonic Dances

Rachmaninoff at his leanest and meanest – his frenzied, biting, and fantastic Symphonic Dances – headlines a program that includes Brahms’ majestic and masterful concerto performed by “complete virtuoso” Markus Groh (Cleveland Plain-Dealer) who plays “just as God and Brahms instruct him,” says Berliner Morgenpost. Film composer Miklós Rózsa sweeps listeners off their feet with a grand waltz from MGM’s 1949 Madame Bovary.
