Soulful, soaring, and electrifying, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 3 makes a striking dramatic statement—especially in the hands of pianist Natasha Paremski, a Rachmaninoff aficionado. The drama is echoed in Strauss’ Suite from Der Rosenkavalier, which tells the tale of a love triangle with humor and wisdom; and in Lera Auerbach’s Icarus, a symphonic poem based on the tragic Greek myth of a winged boy with abundant ambition. Dynamic guest conductor David Danzmayr makes his return appearance with NCS.
