Rachmaninov’s Second Symphony was almost his last — and he almost didn’t compose it. Thankfully he did, in spite of disastrous reviews of his First Symphony, and what we have today is a hauntingly beautiful piece that represents hope, courage, and belief in oneself. Pianist Ingrid Fliter channels her power, energy, and “heart-on-the-sleeve expression” (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel) into Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 2, and John Storgårds takes us on an imaginary trip to the sub-arctic Faroe Islands.
