A four-night run of concerts jointly anchored by Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 1 and Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 6 kicks off Dec 30, and repeats on Jan 2, 3 and 6. (Rimsky-Korsakov's Capriccio espagnol is also on these bills.) Juanjo Mena conducts, and Daniil Trifonov takes on the solo part in the Rachmaninoff. Nestled in between those gigs is the Phil's entry in the city's New Year's Eve classical sweepstakes: a program titled "A Gershwin Celebration." Conducted by Bramwell Tovey and featuring guest vocalist Dianne Reeves, the Dec 31 set list will include arrangements of favorites like "Embraceable You" and "'S Wonderful."
