PROGRAMME


Rachmaninov

Symphony No.3

 


Prokofiev

Piano Concerto No.2

 


Begin your new year of 2008 with a dazzling music showcase! In four consecutive weekends from from 11 Janunary, Maestro De Waart will conduct four of the most brilliant young Chinese musicians today. You will hear the soulful playing of Wang Jian in Dvořák’s cello concerto, the virtuosic performance of Bruch’s Scottish Fantasy by Paganini competition winner Huang Mengla, Prokovfiev’s 2nd Piano Concerto by Yundi Li, and Yang Xuefei’s interpretation of the beloved Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez, the same work with which she won great praises at the mere age of 14 from the legendary Spanish composer himself.

Yundi Li’s first encounter with Edo de Waart in January 2006 produced an unforgettable performance of Liszt’s First Piano Concerto. Yundi Li’s unique blend of effortless technical perfection with poignant musical depth and de Waart’s commanding orchestral mastery are brought together once again, this time in Prokofiev’s explosive Second Piano Concerto. Although Rachmaninov was internationally celebrated during his lifetime as a virtuoso pianist, his sweepingly Romantic compositions have lived on to beguile audiences in the 21st Century.
