BPO's Rachmaninoff Rocks Florida

Florida2

By Mary Kunz Goldman

Observe our orchestra's success in Palm Beach.

"The climax of the first movement thrilled to the bone, and in the cadenza, he became a primal being, arising from the Earth." That is the description of pianist Philippe Bianconi playing Rachmaninoff's Third, which he just played here in Buffalo. The News predicted that the BPO would wake up those Florida snowbirds. We were right!

The Buffalo Philharmonic is away this week in Florida escaping our gray skies. But they will be back by Saturday, for Ann Hampton Callaway paying tribute to Barbra Streisand.
