Three popular symphonic masterpieces! Pianist Steven Lin, praised for his “sparkling virtuosity” (The Washington Post), joins the DPO for Sergei Rachmaninoff’s exciting and romantic Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini. The concert opens with Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s iconic Symphony No. 40, one of the most iconic symphonies in history, and ends with Igor Stravinsky’s The Firebird Suite, from the ballet based on the Russian legend of the Firebird.
