Once Disdained, Now Acclaimed: Rachmaninoff's Symphony No. 1
Although Russian pianist, composer and conductor Sergei Rachmaninoff became an international star, his first symphony was considered a failure when it premiered in 1897, and was not performed again during the composer’s lifetime. As WRTI’s Susan Lewis reports, today it’s regarded much differently.
On Sunday, July 25th at 1 pm on WRTI, listen to a re-broadcast of The Philadelphia Orchestra performing Rachmaninoff's Symphony No. 1 in 2014.
