Osmo Vänskä returns to the Maison symphonique to conduct Rachmaninoff’s sumptuous Symphony no. 2, a masterful interaction of intimacy and exuberance.

Season Presenting Partner

Contrasting fall colours, melodies overflowing with lyricism, and a constant give-and-take of intimacy and exuberance characterize Rachmaninoff’s sumptuous Symphony no. 2. Salonen’s Sinfonia Concertante for Organ and Orchestra unfolds in a dreamlike atmosphere created by its ethereal orchestration. This work will feature Olivier Latry, organist emeritus of the OSM and titular organist of the great organ of Notre-Dame de Paris.
