About this Performance

Born in 2001, Alexander Malofeev became known as the young “Russian genius” after winning the International Tchaikovsky Competition and rising to worldwide fame. Here he takes on the work of another “Russian genius,” performing Rachmaninoff’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini. Consisting of 24 variations of a popular violin tune, the concerto-like piece lets Malofeev “[lead] us, like a tornado, towards excess and madness” (Crescendo Magazine). Dima Slobodeniouk—an International Classical Music Award-winning conductor—makes his LA Phil debut in Rachmaninoff’s Second Symphony, guiding its gorgeous melodies that wander back and forth between heartrending slow movements, a brass-heavy scherzo, and a lively finale.
