The Santa Rosa Symphony conducted by Francesco Lecce-Chong presents a concert entitled ‘RACH & the Hollywood Sound’ in which Rachmaninoff’s monumental orchestral works are brought together with works by influential Hollywood composers of the past and present, illustrating their shared lush, lyrical, and highly praised Hollywood sound.


The concerts pair the Ballet Suite from La Strada (The Road), by influential black-and-white film score composer Nino Rota with Sergei Rachmaninoff‘s brilliant Symphony No. 1. Hildur Guŏnadóttir‘s experimental yet warm ‘From the Other Place’, played from a color map rather than a traditional score, provides room for the strings to organically make music together for a one-of-a-kind performance.


The program:

  • HILDUR GUŎNADÓTTIR: From the Other Place
  • NINO ROTA: Ballet Suite from La Strada [The Road]
