Wagner: Prelude to Die Meistersinger
Ravel: Piano Concerto in G major
Shostakovich: Symphony No. 5
As encores at the October 28 performance, Ms. Wang performed the Precipitato movement from Prokofiev’s Piano Sonata No. 7; a combination of the Arcadi Volodos and Fazil Say arrangements of Mozart’s “Turkish March”; and Schubert’s Gretchen am Spinnrade.
London Symphony Orchestra
Gianandrea Noseda, conductor
Yuja Wang, piano
“Magician of the podium” Gianandrea Noseda (Guardian, U.K.) conducts “piano phenom” Yuja Wang (New Yorker) in Ravel’s G-major Concerto, the French composer’s lively homage to American jazz. The London Symphony Orchestra continues with Shostakovich’s ever-popular Fifth Symphony, a compelling and calculated triumph over Stalinist censorship.
“A rare combination of flamboyance and intelligence.” —New Yorker on Yuja Wang
“Yuja Wang is one of the best young pianists around.” —New York Times
