(New York, NY; January 18, 2023)—Carnegie Hall today announced that the start time for the all-Rachmaninoff performance by The Philadelphia Orchestra and Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin featuring pianist Yuja Wang on Saturday, January 28 has been updated to begin at 4:00 p.m. instead of the previously announced 2:00 p.m. The program, which celebrates the 150th anniversary year of Rachmaninoff’s birth, will include all four of the composer’s piano concerti, plus the Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, marking the first time that the complete Rachmaninoff concerti will ever have been performed together on one concert program at Carnegie Hall. The performance will last approximately three and one-half hours, including two 20-minute intermissions.

Wow! Would be great if she does the original version of No 4 – much better than the other three versions which are often muddled up – the 1926 parts must be in the Philadelphia Orchestra archives. But this is a true marathon of pianistic artistry and commitment – a pint of Whizz! energy drink in the interval should do it!
