Olga & Sergei

Saturday, October 12, 2024 / 8 p.m.

Roberto Minczuk Music Director
Olga Kern piano

Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No. 3 in d minor, Op. 30
Bruckner Symphony No. 4 in E-flat Major, WAB 104

Olga Kern is back, this time performing Sergei Rachmaninoff’s most technically challenging concerto, one made famous by Vladimir Horowitz. This will be but the latest of Olga’s visits to New Mexico, each one building upon the last. The symphonies of Anton Bruckner, including the fourth, performed here, were also built one upon the other. His Symphony No. 4 is known for both the extensive revisions it received by the composer as well as its powerful finale.
