The Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra presents The Troika Friday, February 19 and Saturday, February 20 at Hilbert Circle Theatre in Indianapolis downtown. This Indianapolis music event features Larry Rachleff as conductor and Terrence Wilson on piano as the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra presents “a troika” of Russian composers: Tchaikovsky, Rachmanninoff and Prokofiev. Tickets for this Indianapolis performing arts event range from $16.00 to $55.00 depending on seat section.
The Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, led by Larry Rachleff, will perform Tchaikovsky’s Marche Slave, Rachmanninoff’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini and Prokofiev’s Symphony Number 5. Rachleff is an extremely competent conductor, who will lead the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra to new heights. As the Music Director of the Rhode Island Philharmonic and the Director of Orchestras and the Walter Kris Hubert Chair at Rice University’s Shepherd School of music, Rachleff has a lot on his plate.
His touring schedule is rigorous, as he is in constant demand as a guest conductor. He has worked orchestras across the United States including the Utah Symphony, the Houston Symphony, the Seattle Symphony, the Kansas City Symphony, the Phoenix Symphony, the Dayton Symphony and the Toledo Symphony (among others).
He recently performed Profofiev’s Fifth Symphony in Salt Lake City. Critics there had this to say, “His interpretation was charged with power and passion that never waned. His reading was compelling, yet he also managed to bring out the lyricism that lies hidden beneath the boldness of the themes. What was especially remarkable , he conducted the work from memory. . . It was a fabulous collaboration between orchestra and conductor.”
On piano for The Troika is Terrence Wilson. Wilson has also toured the nation playing in a diverse list of cities including Atlanta, Baltimore, Cincinnati, Dallas, Washington DC, San Francisco, St. Louis, St. Paul and many many more. He has also traveled abroad to share his music in Spain, Switzerland, Brazil, and Scotland. A graduate of The Julliard School, Wilson offers supreme performance skills.
