      EVENT DETAILS
      Asheville Symphony: Rachmaninoff's 2nd feat. Itamar Zorman, Violin

      Nicholas Hersh, conductor
      Itamar Zorman, violin
      This exploration of how the Romantic voice resonates in the 21st century begins with Beethoven who catapults listeners from the 18th century into the modern age in the fiery Leonore Overture. Rachmaninoff calls upon both his 19th-century Russian roots and a lush, 20th-century orchestral sound to create a sweeping, semi-autobiographical epic in his Second Symphony. And between these monoliths, a living voice of Romanticism: Jonathan Leshnoff, whose soulful Chamber Concerto is played by the inimitable Itamar Zorman. Zorman also lends his talents to conductor Nicholas Hersh’s arrangement of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody”—not only a rock classic but a postmodern Romantic masterpiece.
      Program:
      Beethoven: Leonore Overture No. 3
      Leshnoff: Chamber Concerto for Violin and Orchestra (2015)
      –Concerto encore–Queen/Hersh: “Bohemian Rhapsody” for Violin and Orchestra
      Rachmaninoff: Symphony No. 2
