Spring Concerts

Three masterpieces from the Romantic period grace our second concert series set, with featured piano soloist Victor Xie performing the virtuosic and dazzling Piano Concerto no. 2 by Camille Saint-Saëns. We also feature our brass section as we open with the Fanfare from La Peri by Paul Dukas, followed by the final movement of the Piano Quartet in G Minor by Johannes Brahms, orchestrated by Arnold Schoenberg in 1937, and concludes with one of Maestro Eylar's signature favorites, the powerful and ultra-romantic Third Symphony of Sergei Rachmaninov.
