Now celebrating their 20th season together, Maestro MTT and the SFS welcome sparkling young British pianist Benjamin Grosvenor, who's all of 22, to perform Ravel's fizzy Piano Concerto in G major. But the concert opens and closes with a pair of romantic Romeo and Juliet pieces, the first from Tchaikovsky and the finale from Prokofiev. Tchaikovsky's famed love theme's been featured in lots of TV shows and movies, ranging from A Christmas Story to Clueless and Sesame Street to SpongeBob Squarepants, while Tilson Thomas and the SF Symphony's recording of the Prokofiev piece won the 1996 Grammy for Best Orchestral Performance.

Bartok's Second Concerto showcased her power...our only disappointment were the Swan...continued
Quotes & Highlights

- “The arrival of Chinese-born pianist Yuja Wang on the musical scene is an exhilarating and unnerving development. To listen to her in action is to re-examine whatever assumptions you may have had about how well the piano can actually be played.” —San Francisco Chronicle
