NJSO: Rachmaninoff's Second Piano Concerto

Praised as “alarmingly gifted” by Classical Review, Kirill Gerstein scales the towering peak of the “Rach 2,” one of the most loved concertos in the repertoire.

VERDI Nabucco Overture

Verdi himself said that “Nabucco was born under a lucky star,” and his rousing overture remains as popular today as ever.

RACHMANINOFF Piano Concerto No. 2

Keyboard pyrotechnics and expressive melodies. Completed as Rachmaninoff overcame depression and writer’s block via hypnotherapy.

ELGAR Enigma Variations

At once jovial and sincere. Each variation is an homage to a family member or friend, but Elgar hinted at a secret “enigmatic” theme that links the variations.
