Atlanta Symphony Orchestra

Kirell Gerstein Atlanta Symphony Orchestra

Russian-American pianist and composer Sergei Rachmaninov, who died 75 years ago in Beverly Hills, left a legacy of rousing compositions that are considered among the very best of the 20th century. The ASO celebrates Rachmaninov with the “flat-out fabulous” Kirill Gerstein (Cleveland Classical ) and the Piano Concerto No. 2. One of the best-loved pieces of all time, the “Rach 2” combines luxurious melodies with fistfuls of notes. It’s a powerhouse program rounded out by Tchaikovsky’s high-octane Fifth Symphony.

Pre-performance talk in Ramsey Concert Hall at 7:15 p.m. (free admission).
