Rite of Spring and Rach 3
Pianist Garrick Ohlsson, winner of the Chopin International Piano Competition, shows his versatility and range when he joins the Houston Symphony for Rite of Spring and Rach 3. The program includes Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring and Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 3. In 1913, Rite of Spring was so different from anything audiences had heard up until then that a riot broke out when it was first performed. 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, 2:30 p.m. Sunday. Jones Hall, 615 Louisiana. For information, call 713-224-7575 or visit www.houstonsymphony.org. $25 to $94.
