DANIEL R. MARTIN MASTERWORKS SERIES
Rachmaninoff and Shostakovich

Fresno Philharmonic
Rei Hotoda, music director and conductor
Barry Douglas, piano

Gabriela Lena Frank Escaramuza
Shostakovich Piano Concerto No. 2
Rachmaninoff Symphony No. 2

Acclaimed pianist Barry Douglas, a favorite of the Philip Lorenz International keyboard Concerts, makes his Fresno Philharmonic debut performing Shostakovich’s effervescent Piano Concerto No. 2, one of the composer’s most light hearted works.  Sergey Rachmaninoff’s epic Symphony No. 2 is full of gorgeous melodies, some of which have been turned into popular songs. Yet it was also an act of artistic courage coming after the disastrous reception his first symphony received. Gabriela Lena Frank’s exciting and percussive Escaramuza (“skirmish”) is inspired by the kachampa dances of Andean Perú.
