The St. Louis Symphony concluded its 2011-2012 subscription series season with “Rach Fest” featuring Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concertos 1, 2 and 3 with Stephen Hough as soloist in six concerts over two weekends.
The programs on Fridays, April 27 and May 4 featured the first Rachmaninoff concerto. Hans Graf conducted the St. Louis Symphony on April 28 and 29 in a program including Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Skazka,” Op. 29, Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 1 in F minor, Op. 10 and Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2, in C minor, Op 18.
