So much of the finest movie music of recent years has come from British inspirations—from the stately gloom of “Downton Abbey” to the gripping suspense of DUNKIRK. We’ll follow all that excitement with the welcome return of one of our favorite international soloists—our own “Italian movie star”, the amazingly gifted Alessio Bax, in another Rachmaninov gem from the world of the silver screen.
