Nathan Aspinall, Associate Conductor
Behzod Abduraimov, Pianist
Rachmaninoff’s Third Piano Concerto is widely regarded as one of the most fiendishly difficult in the repertoire, and young superstar Behzod Abduraimov is equipped with the commanding arsenal necessary to convey lyricism, thunder and everything in between. Also, Shostakovich’s first great, clandestinely subversive anti-Soviet work – the powerful Fifth Symphony.
