We have heard how the past influences the present. This evening’s finale revisits this intertwined commentary on music history as we open with Unsuk Chin’s composition, Frontispiece, a self-described “timelapse of the history of music”. We will then hear Sergei Babayan light up the keys in Rachmaninoff’s melodious second piano concerto, a composition from 1901 that has appeared in popular culture dozens of times in the last century. The 20/21 season comes to an epic conclusion with Act III of Wagner’s Tannhäuser, performed in collaboration with the UMS Choral Union.
