Malina: Common Fanfare for an Uncommon Orchestra*
Prokofiev: Violin Concerto No. 2
Rachmaninoff: Symphony No. 2
These masters of melody don’t disappoint. Rachmaninoff’s genius is on full display in his lush Symphony No. 2. Prokofiev’s Violin Concerto No. 2 soars with a haunting solo, performed by Alex Kerr, who formerly held the prestigious position of concertmaster of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in Amsterdam. This is his TFO debut.
The TFO Musicians will be collecting new, unwrapped toys for Toys for Tots at these concerts. To read more about the toy drive, click here.
* This short celebratory fanfare was composed by TFO’s Principal Guest Conductor Stuart Malina in honor of the orchestra’s 50th anniversary season.
