Let the Austin Symphony Orchestra take you on a trip around the musical universe as pianist Orion Weiss takes us on a ride through a constellation of a piece, known as Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 3. It is feared by many pianists due to its difficulty. It was also the main piece in the movie “Shine,” in which Geoffrey Rush portrays a real-life character who tries to master the “Rach 3.” Arnold Schoenberg's orchestration of Johannes Brahms' Piano Quartet in G Minor is the other song being performed.
