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.
* This short celebratory fanfare was composed by TFO’s Principal Guest Conductor Stuart Malina in honor of the orchestra’s 50th anniversary season.
