BREVARD COUNTY • SATELLITE BEACH, FLORIDA – Wise pianists fear Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2. Yet Dr. Lindsay Garritson will make the fiendishly complex piece seem like child’s play when the Space Coast Symphony Orchestra presents Brahms & Rach on January 28 at 7 p.m., at the Satellite High School Performing Arts Center, located at 300 Scorpion Court in Satellite Beach.
The Piano Concerto No. 2 established Rachmaninoff’s fame as a concerto composer–and is one of his most enduringly popular pieces. Garritson is an award-winning international pianist who made her Carnegie Hall solo recital debut in 2019.
The Jensen Beach, Florida resident earned her Master’s degree in Music and Artist Diploma from the Yale School of Music and the Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the University of Miami.
The second half of Brahms & Rach will focus on a titan of the symphonic repertoire, Brahms’ Symphony No. 4. Brahms’ final symphony, the fourth, is today regarded as his finest work in the genre.
Lush and complex, the work was enthusiastically received when it premiered in 1885, with nuance and inspiration from both Beethoven and Bach found within its four movements.
$30 tickets are available through the orchestra website at www.SpaceCoastSymphony.org or at Marine Bank & Trust in Suntree. Tickets at the door are $35.
Concertgoers aged 18 and under or with a college ID are admitted free to every SCSO concert. For more information about Brahms & Rach, call toll-free at 855-252-7276.
For Space Coast Symphony Orchestra Conductor and Artistic Director Aaron T. Collins, Brahms & Rach is a chance to showcase the work of two orchestral giants and the sizable talent of guest artist Lindsay Garritson.
“With gorgeous melody, full orchestration, and blistering speed, Rachmaninoff’s second piano concerto is simply one of the best ever written,” said Collins. “And we are lucky enough to be joined by a fearless pianist who will bring this work to life!”
Concertgoers aged 18 and under or with a college ID are admitted free to every SCSO concert.
