Presented by Diablo Symphony Orchestra
May 20, 2018
Music Direction & Conducted by Matilda Hofman

We delve deep into the musical nostalgia of the mid-twentieth century with two great orchestrators: Respighi and Stokowski. Respighi’s orchestrations of Rachmaninoff’s musical paintings, from seagulls to a Russian fairground, are a brilliant combination of the imagination of two composers. Prepare to be stunned by the extraordinary playing of Walnut Creek pianist Mungunchimeg Buriad in Rachmaninoff’s great Second Piano Concerto.

Running Time: approx. 2 hour 15 mintues, with one intermission

Piano: MUNGUNCHIMEG BURIAD

J.S. Bach/Leopold Stokowski – Air on the G String
Sergei Rachmaninoff/Ottorino Respighi – Etudes-Tableaux
Sergei Rachmaninoff – Piano Concerto No. 2


Parking Advisory: Please note that the Lesher Center Garage will be under construction.  The Lesher Center Portal Project will create a walkway from the Parking Garage to the Lesher Center, so patrons can travel between the two structures without having to exit on Locust Street.  Construction will begin in early April and continue through mid-May.  Entry from Locust Street into the Garage will be reduced to one lane.  Accessible parking will not be available on the ground floor, and access to the Locust Street side elevator and stairwell may be blocked during constuction.  Please take advantage of the California Boulevard side entrance and elevator during this transition period.  Click here to sign up for regular email updates from the City of Walnut Creek.
