Nikolai Saratovsky, piano
Antonín Dvořák: Symphony No.9 in E minor, Op.95, From the New World
Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No.2 with Saratovsky as the soloist! Saratovsky is an internationally acclaimed Russian pianist, who is having a stellar career in the classical music world. Through its sweeping melodies, extravagant grandeur, melancholy and passion, the concerto makes an unabashed appeal to the emotions, and qualifies as the most popular piano concerto in the world. The musicians love playing it; and the audiences love listening to it--Dvořák’s most popular symphony (No.9), a favorite repertory of NSO audiences, was written in the New World (USA), but eloquently depicts the composer’s Bohemian homeland in Europe. There are no traditional folk songs in this work, but the musical themes reflect Slavonic soil and landscapes.
