Rachmaninov: Concerto for piano and orchestra no. 2 in C minor, Op. 18
Little more than a hundred years separate the two piano concertos by Beethoven and Rachmaninov which will close the 39th Torroella de Montgrí Festival. Both works were written by pianist-composers who dazzled the audiences of their time with their displays of virtuosity, and both concerti received their first performance with the composers themselves at the piano. Only a true virtuoso could play both works in one concert, and in Torroella it will be the Sicilian Giuseppe Andaloro, a brilliant pianist of the new Italian generation of musicians, accompanied by the Orquestra Simfònica del Vallès.
