CLASSICAL | RPO with Michael Francis and Yekwon Sunwoo 

This week the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra offers a great, well-known piano concerto and a great, lesser-known symphony: not a bad deal. You may remember the 1996 movie about pianist David Helfgott,"Shine," in which he battles through Rachmaninoff's Third Concerto — one of the virtuosic bruisers of the repertoire. Van Cliburn Competition Gold Medalist Yekwon Sunwoo takes on "Rach Three" here in his RPO debut. In the first half of the concert, British conductor Michael Francis, who made his RPO debut in 2015 conducting Sir William Walton's "Henry V," brings us another major Walton work: his electric, if seldom-played First Symphony.

The RPO, Francis, and Sunwoo play Thursday, April 11,7:30 p.m. and Saturday, April 13, 8 p.m. at Eastman Theatre's Kodak Hall. $24-$106. 454-2100. rpo.org; michaelfrancisconductor.com; yekwonsunwoo.com.
