26may7:30 pmEugene SymphonyC3: Creativity/Rachmaninov's Second


Event Details


Tan Dun: Passacaglia: Secret of Wind and Birds
Matthew Browne: Symphony No. 1, “The Course of Empire” (Pacific Northwest Premiere, Eugene Symphony Co-Commission)
Rachmaninov: Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor, Op. 18

Join us for the first our C3 Series: three interlinked concerts that highlight how individual creativity creates connections between us, which then help forge a community. We open with audience participation during Chinese master Tan Dun’s short work that includes sounds of wind and birdsong that you’re invited to play from your phone while the orchestra plays onstage! Then, we debut our four-year “First Symphony Project” with the new work by Composer-in-Residence Matt Browne. As the grand finale, we hear Sergei Rachmaninov’s epic Second Piano Concerto, which brought him back from the brink of writer’s block that threatened his career.
