The York Symphony Orchestra presents Liszt & Rachmaninoff: From Canvas to Concert concert with in-person theatre seats and 48-hour digital access options. Tickets start at $11!
Camille Saint-Saëns: Danse macabre
William Popp: The Galleries (World Premiere)
Sergei Rachmaninoff: The Isle of the Dead
Franz Liszt: Hunnenschlacht (Battle of the Huns)
This Liszt and Rachmaninoff concert commemorates composers who created symphonic poems from thought provoking paintings. Inspired by Böcklin’s painting of a small boat on the unwelcoming sea near an island, Sergei Rachmaninoff’s The Isle of the Dead portrays the menacing waves concluding with a jubilation of reaching the island. Franz Liszt’s victorious Hunnenschlacht was devised from Battle of the Huns painting. Camille Saint-Saëns’s Danse macabre portrays the skeletons dancing on their graves with unique usage of the xylophone for clattering bones. Finally, the YSO is a proud to perform the world premiere of William Popps’ The Galleries.
Tickets start at $11, and Under 18 tickets are $11.
