The breathtaking kaleidoscope of Rachmaninoff’s colorful, flamboyant take on Niccolò Paganini’s melody is paired with the impressive triumph of the symphony that Beethoven himself called “one of the happiest products of my poor talents.” The energy of the two masterworks is mirrored in the multicultural rhythms of Jessie Montgomery’s modern work inspired by New York City’s frenetic pace.

Robert Schumann’s poetically expressive Cello Concerto was written in a brief two weeks of 1850 shortly before he was institutionalized, but rarely performed before the end of the 19th century. Similarly, Franck’s only symphony, both melancholy and luminous, was originally considered too avant-garde and radical, but became his most popular work after his death.
