Rachmaninoff at Music Hall
Tue, 17 Oct 2017

This month, Clef Notes is taking a look at a few of the international stars who have performed inside Music Hall throughout its rich history. We are also highlighting the various celebratory performances that take place in the hall as part of its grand re-opening events this month.

Did you know that the great pianist and composer Sergei Rachmaninoff performed on the Music Hall stage not once, but three times? In 1910, he performed his Second Piano Concerto alongside the CSO. He returned the following season and years later during the 193738 season. He even was offered the position of music director in 1918, but politely declined. He preferred to further his career as a traveling virtuoso.
