With many apologies to Maurice Ravel and Sergei Rachmaninoff, it's the third "R" on this weekend's Omaha Symphony program — "Rhapsody in Blue" — that rightly commands the most attention.

Some may see that as a shame, since orchestras across the country present George Gershwin's iconic 1924 quasi-concerto regularly. But Omahans have additional reasons to check out this presentation of the "Rhapsody," which opened Friday night and repeats at 8 p.m. today alongside Ravel's "Rapsodie espagnol" and Rachmaninoff's Second Symphony in E minor.
