RACHMANINOFF– Piano Concerto No. 4
RACHMANINOFF– Piano Concerto No. 1

Hang on tight as piano superstar Yuja Wang (“one of the most talented, enthralling, and even mesmerizing performers on the world scene” ~ HuffPost) takes you on a wild ride with Rachmaninoff’s First Piano Concerto! The composer—a virtuoso himself—packed in plenty of fireworks to challenge even the most athletic of pianists. Yuja also solos in another of Rachmaninoff’s piano concertos —the rare Fourth Piano Concerto, where orchestra and piano meet in Rachmaninoff’s signature sound, lush chords (a nod to jazz), and hinting at the composer he is to become with the early shadows of Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini and his future cinematic style. Plus, Debussy’s iconic (and notorious) masterpiece, from sinuous flute introduction to final languorous bars…erotic reveries in all their voluptuous, ephemeral beauty.
