This performance has unfortunately been cancelled, to allow the Utah Symphony more rehearsal time for the new opera Moby-Dick.
Stephen Hough, “one of the finest pianists of the age” (St. Louis Post-Dispatch), performs Rachmaninoff’s boldly romantic Piano Concerto No. 1. Preceding it is a newly discovered gem by the young Stravinsky, Funeral Song, performed only once before becoming lost for more than a century. It was composed just before his first big success (and this program’s big finish)—the colorful, hugely imaginative score for the ballet The Firebird.
