Rossen Milanov, conductor
Zhu Wang, piano

Mussorgsky: Sunrise on Moscow River 
Rachmaninoff: Piano Concerto No. 2 
Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 5 

Praised by The New York Times as “a superb pianist, a thoughtful, sensitive performer,” Zhu Wang plays perhaps the most-famous work in the piano concerto repertoire, Sergei Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2.

Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony has become one of the most famous works of the symphonic genre. The piece draws parallels to Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony with a ‘Fate Theme’ thread throughout, and a general sense of movement from dark to light. 

Special thanks to Graves Piano.

Prelude: Join Christopher Purdy from WOSU Classical 101 for a pre-concert talk at 6:30pm.


This concert is dedicated in memory of Joseph “Jay” E. Suiter.
