TFO’s mini festival celebrating 150 years of Rachmaninoff concludes with the “Everest” of piano concertos, his Piano Concerto No. 3, famously featured in the movie Shine. It’s also the composer’s most difficult work – and most thrilling, especially in the hands of pianist Joyce Yang, who returns for her second weekend in a row with Maestro Francis and TFO. The concert begins with Carl August Nielsen’s Symphony No. 4, “Inextinguishable,” a tour de force showpiece for the orchestra.
