Egyptian Pianist to Tackle Rachmaninoff’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini…

When Egyptian pianist Wael Farouk performs Rachmaninoff’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini with the Spartanburg Philharmonic Orchestra he will play a piece of music known to be doubly difficult. Music Director, Sarah Ioannides will conduct this concert along with a performance celebrating the 100th Anniversary of Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring at the final concert of the season –  Saturday, May 4.

“Wael is a world-class pianist, who will make this music thrilling to anyone,” Ioannides said. “There is no doubt in my mind that his performance will be stellar. And what a treat it will be to have someone with a strong Spartanburg connection play a piece of music so well known. When you combine this with our other piece—The Rite of Spring—this last concert of the season is guaranteed to get people excited.”
