Conducted by Maestro Kirk Muspratt
with Guest Pianist Wael Farouk
A once-in-a-lifetime, ground-breaking concert, features international pianist Wael Farouk and New Philharmonic orchestra with Maestro Kirk Muspratt performing Rachmaninoff’s Concerto 1 in F-sharp minor, Concerto 2 in C minor AND Concerto 3 in D-minor. These three pieces are so challenging that they have never been performed in one concert before by a single pianist.
Enjoy this streamed concert premiering April 17, available on-demand through June 15th. Concerto 1 in F-sharp minor, was actually Rachmaninoff’s second attempt at a piano concerto (and is very different from his later works), Concerto 2 is one of his most enduring works, and Concerto 3 builds to what has been described as the Mt. Everest of concertos requiring a pianist of the highest ability, strength and emotion to perform.
Get to know pianist Wael Farouk and his inspirational story through this video interview with MAC Director Diana Martinez and Maestro Muspratt. Learn how much work and dedication Farouk has done for this ground-breaking concert. Mr. Farouk has performed on five continents in such venues as the White Hall in St. Petersburg, Schumann’s house in Leipzig, and Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall in New York, where his solo debut performance in 2013 was described as “absolutely masterful.”
