Rachmaninoff's 2nd Symphony Side-by-Side by Performance with Psyo

paducah youth symphonyMembers of the 2014 Paducah Youth Symphony Orchestra PADUCAH, Ky (1/28/14) – On February 1, 2014 the Paducah Symphony Orchestra will present it's fifth concert of the season, Rachmaninoff ’s 2nd Symphony on the stage of the Carson Center at 7:30PM.

This concert will feature a side-by-side performance with the Paducah Symphony Youth Orchestra.

The PSYO is the regions only youth orchestra that has the opportunity to play alongside a professional orchestra in a regular season concert. Students will perform on the second piece of the program, Rites of Tamburo by Robert W. Smith.

Composed in 1999, this is an exciting programmatic piece for a younger aged concert ensemble. The “mysterious” introduction features, bells, and chimes playing a repetitive flowing rhythm while the horn and flute play half and quarter note chant-like lines that weave in and out of each other.

The main piece of the night is Rachmaninoff’s Symphony No. 2.
 
Written between 1906 and 1907, Symphony No. 2 was premiered in St. Petersburg on February 8, 1908 and was conducted by the composer himself. The score is dedicated to Sergei Taneyev, a Russian composer, theorist, teacher, author and student of Tchaikovsky. When this piece was composed, Rachmaninoff had just had two seasons as the conductor of the Imperial Opera at the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow.

Although he was successful in the field, Rachmaninoff felt that he was a composer first and foremost and that the conducting schedule was taking away from the time he needed to spend composing. He moved his wife and daughter to Dresden, Germany to spend the majority of his time composing and because the political unrest in Russia. He stayed there for three years with his family and spent summers at his in-law’s estate of Ivanovka. During this time he wrote his Second Symphony.

The Paducah Symphony Orchestra is a 501(c)3non-profit organization. The Kentucky Arts Council, the state arts agency, provides operating support to the Paducah Symphony Orchestra with state tax dollars and federal funding from the National Endowment for the Arts.
