Celebrated for her captivating artistry and stage presence, “daredevil pianist” Yuja Wang is at her finest performing Bartók’s Second Piano Concerto. From its thunderous opening to fiery finale, this formidable work is a brilliant showcase for Wang’s “impeccable technique” and “edgy, kind of naughty personality” (The New York Times).
On the podium, young Finnish prodigy Tarmo Peltokoski makes a smashing debut conducting a masterpiece by his fellow countryman: Sibelius’ lushly romantic Symphony No. 1.
