    The Alexandria Symphony Orchestra’s 2018-2019 season concludes in April, featuring Rachmaninoff’s famed Piano Concerto No. 3 with soloist Marianna Prjevalskaya. The concerto is heralded as one of the most technically difficult in the modern repertoire; its notoriety expanded in pop culture with the release of the 1996 film, Shine, loosely based on the life of pianist David Helfgott. By contrast, Schumann’s Symphony No. 1 “Spring” was an early work in the composer’s repertoire, inspired by German poetry and expanding on the composer’s early songs for voice and piano.
