This concert was a bit tougher to find in a movie, which surprised me, since Rachmaninoff’s Second Piano Concerto is such an incredibly popular and beautiful piece. Unfortunately, the only movies I could find it in are not one’s I’d be super comfortable posting here. So I had to look at some of the other planned pieces for this concert. Then I remembered the song, A Stranger in Paradise, from the movie Kismet. The melody of this song was taken from one of the slow movements of Alexander Borodin’s Polovstian Dances, from the opera Prince Igor.
Join us on May 9 and 10, 2014, with Josh Wright and Rachmaninoff’s Second Piano Concerto and a rousing performance of Borodin’s Polovstian Dances, along with other Russian greats. To listen to Polovstian Dances, click here.
