Updated March 28, 2020: In an effort to reduce the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), all Seattle Symphony performances are either canceled or postponed through May 31, 2020. 

With their unforgettable melodies and astonishing technical feats, Rachmaninov’s piano concertos are the ultimate vehicles for artistry and virtuosity. This two-night festival lets you trace the evolution of an iconoclastic composer while discovering new stars from around the world, including Japan’s Aimi Kobayashi and France’s Rémi Geniet. Rachmaninov was a staggeringly talented teenager himself when he made his public debut as a composer and performer.

Alexandra Dovgan and Aimi Kobayashi perform.
