There’s much to savor in Rachmaninoff’s stirring "Symphonic Dances," an alto saxophone and pulsating percussion in the first; a dark, eerie waltz in the second; and Russian Orthodox chants, tubular bells and the composer’s go-to Dies irae in the last. Garrick Ohlsson’s virtuosity is on full display in Barber’s breathtaking Piano Concerto, praised at its premiere as “the birth of an American classic, a big, splashy, old-fashioned concerto.”
