The Classical Symphony Orchestra Presents Rachmaninoff Symphony No. 2 in E Minor, Chicago, February 7


Rachmaninoff's immensely popular Symphony No. 2 in E Minor has melodies of singular beauty, rich coloring, beautiful nuances, and impressive sonority combined with frequent and sharp contrasts in sentiment, rhythm and expression.

 

 

Chicago, Illinois, January 25, 2016 - The Classical Symphony Orchestra will be giving the second concert of the 2015-16 Season, Rachmaninoff Symphony No. 2 in E Minor, on Sunday, February 7, 2016 at 3pm.

Free parking is located in Parking Lot F next to the Fine Arts Center. Ticket prices are $10.00 general admission.
 
Respighi’s Fountains of Rome symphonic poem endeavors to give expression to the sentiments and visions suggested to the composer by four of Rome’s famous fountains contemplated at the hour in which their character is most in harmony with the surrounding landscape, or in which their beauty appears most impressive to the observer. The composition sparkles with brilliant and colorful harmonies and melodies.
