About This Performance

“[Yuja Wang has] a practical superhuman keyboard technique with artistic eloquence that is second to none” -San Francisco Chronicle

Manfred Honeck closes the season with the young Chinese virtuoso Yuja Wang.  She performs Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto.  Its recognizable opening is sure to put a smile on your face that lasts throughout this lush and treasured piece.    Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 5 is a Russian masterpiece with deep meaning for the composer and his country – a grand finale.
