Seattle Festival Orchestra starts its season with a bang with Mendelssohn’s brilliant Piano Concerto No. 1. Written when Mendelssohn was just 21 years old, this work soon became one of his most popular pieces. The concerto is in three connected movements and is filled with tuneful melodies and dazzling piano virtuosity. Rachmaninoff’s Symphony No. 2 takes up the second half of the program. With the spectacular failure of his First Symphony it is a wonder that the Second was ever written. After battling depression and self-doubt, however, the composer emerged with a work that proved his immense talent. Composed on an epic scale, the Second Symphony displays Rachmaninoff’s mastery of form, melody and orchestral color.
