Cecile Licad and Rach 3
The Piano Concerto No. 3 in D minor, Op. 30 (aka "Rach 3") by Rachmaninoff (colloquially known as the "Rach 3") is a technically and musically demanding concerto, and Cecile Licad wowed the audience recently.[an error occurred while processing this directive]
Licad performed as soloist of the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of JoAnne Faletta.
I was amused by the headline in the Philippine Daily Inquirer, because apparently Rach 3 is technically difficult and requires large male hands. And according to Wikipedia, a typical performance of the concerto lasts about 40 minutes.
No wonder a 2002 performance was segmented into a number of video parts in YouTube by tiklado07. In a vid (uploaded in September 2007) marked "Rachmaninov - Piano Concerto no. 3 (Cecile Licad) 1/6", tiklado07 writes:
This is a video documentary taken by a private camcorder on June 17, 2002 at the Cultural Center of the Philippines Main Theater with Philippine pianist, Cecile Licad, performing the Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto no. 3 in D minor, Op. 30 with the San Miguel Orchestra under the direction of Rodel Colmenar.
Ms. Cecile Licad will return to the Philippines in 2009 for a concert with cellist Alban Gerhardt.
