WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Rhapsodies embody highly contrasting moods and colors, and an air of spontaneous inspiration and improvisation. Perhaps no other work exemplifies these qualities more than Rachmaninoff's Rhapsody on a Theme by Paganini. Of Brahms' iconic take on the genre, Clara Schumann remarked, "The Alto Rhapsody seems to me neither more nor less than the expression of his own heart's anguish. If only he would for once speak as tenderly!" Donizetti's unforgettable mad scene in Lucia di Lammermoor showcases an unparalleled interplay of coloratura vocal lines, flute melodies, and symphonic vigor in a tour de force of music drama. Considered Queen's magnum opus, the Bohemian Rhapsody fantastically fuses ballad and opera with their feared rival, heavy metal. Come experience each rhapsody's unique transformations, from the most brilliant and haunting to the utterly lyrical and intimate.
