Live from the Metropolitan Museum of Art
The Music of Rachmaninoff"

    For 14 consecutive sold-out seasons at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, distinguished pianist Ruth Laredo has been presented in a unique series that has won her exceptional acclaim for her masterful playing and lively commentary.  Her Programs have encompassed a broad range of composers, from Scriabin, Ravel and Rachmaninoff to Clara and Robert Schumann, Brahms, Chopin, Dvorak, and Tchaikovsky.  Making use of biographical sketches, musical examples and personal insights, she creates a living portrait of the composer and his music.
