Teen Night @ the ASO – Apr 7
Come enjoy an evening filled with the musical stylings of Sergei Rachmaninoff with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. Sergei Rachmaninoff is well known not only as a Russian composer and conductor, but also a Russian pianist. Although only recorded as 6’1,” stories about Rachmaninoff include his height at 6’3″ with massive hands with a gigantic finger stretch, which could easily spread over 12-13 piano keys. (He could play one octave chords with one hand!) He physically had a larger-than-life stature. As a result, many of his piano pieces are physically demanding for others because of the spaced-out voicing of his piano chords. Rachmaninoff was strongly influenced by the Russian 5 (Mily Balakirev, César Cui, Modest Mussorgsky, Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, and Alexander Borodin) as well as Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. Since many of his works prominently featured the piano, Rachmaninoff would frequently premiere his own works as the piano soloist with the orchestra. After the Bolshevik Revolution, Rachmaninoff and his family fled Russia, finally immigrating to the United States of America, where he composed Symphonic Dances.
The Wells Fargo Artsvibe Teen Program is proud to provide free tickets for teens to select Atlanta Symphony Orchestra Performances throughout the year. This season Artsvibe is offering free tickets to eleven different concerts. Any teen, ages 13-18, is invited to sign up for a free ticket to hear the musicians perform in Atlanta Symphony Hall. We believe in the powerful impact of live instrumental music and want to give every teen an opportunity to participate in that experience.
